Benign schwannomas arise from neural crest-derived Schwann cells. Schwannomas occurring in the biliary tract become clinically symptomatic due to their compression on the extra hepatic biliary tract causing obstructive jaundice. Their preoperative diagnosis is extremely difficult. We report a 38-year-old male who presented with pain abdomen and jaundice. Computed tomography of abdomen showed extra luminal compression of common bile duct (CBD) possibly by a lymph nodal mass. Resection of the CBD, gall bladder and the mass compressing the CBD with Rouxen-Y hepaticojejunostomy was performed. The final histopathology was reported as a schwannoma.
