Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs) represent a relatively new clinical entity. IPMNs have malignant potential which exhibit a broad histological spectrum, ranging from adenoma to invasive carcinoma. Although IPMNs are commonly seen within pancreas, they may develop anywhere within the biliary ductal system and produce mucin which may cause intermittent jaundice. This report details the case of 50-year-old woman presenting with intermittent jaundice who was diagnosed as hepatic IPMN.
