Abstract

Carcinoid tumors of the bile duct are rare. Despite cholangiocarcinoma, they grow more slowly and generally occur in younger patients and females. These tumors have a better prognosis and more disease-free survival. We present the case of a 25-year- old male with common bile duct (CBD) carcinoid tumor misdiagnosed as cholangiocarcinoma.
