Amputation neuroma of the common bile duct after surgery is a rare and mostly asymptomatic lesion. A 60-year old patient presented with obstructive jaundice three months after a cholecystectomy for symptomatic gallstones. Imaging investigations showed common extrahepatic bile duct stenosis. Surgical resection of the stricture with biliodigestive anastomosis was performed. Histological examination of the surgical specimen revealed an amputation neuroma. Despite its rarity, amputation neuroma of the common bile duct should be considered in patients with post-cholecystectomy syndrome following liver or extrahepatic bile duct surgical procedures.
