Breast cancer is the most common tumor and the main cause of death for malignancy in women. Common sites of metastasis include bones, lungs, lymph nodes, liver and brain. Although widespread metastases can compress or infiltrate the bile ducts, direct metastatic involvement of extrahepatic bile ducts are rare. Herein we present a patient with a history of breast cancer who is an exceptional case with metastatic infiltration of extrahepatic bile ducts in the absence of hepatic lesions and any other systemic metastasis.
