Abstract

There have been a few case reports of metachronous gallbladder and extrahepatic bile duct (EHBD) carcinoma, especially associated with an anomalous junction of the pancreaticobiliary duct system. Double common bile duct (DCBD) is a rare congenital malformation. We report a case of a distal bile duct carcinoma presenting two years after radical cholecystectomy for gallbladder carcinoma in a patient with a DCBD.
