Bile duct carcinoma is a relatively uncommon lesion that usually presents in the 6th to 7th decade. The only prior reported cases under the age of 20 were two patients with diseases known to predispose to the development of this tumor. We report a case of a 17-year-old girl with a bile duct tumor without any known predisposing factors.
