Abstract

A patient with right upper quadrant pain showed normal tracer extraction and a prolonged hepatocellular phase during biliary imaging, findings that are most consistent with complete common duct obstruction. He had no other evidence of biliary tract obstruction and was diagnosed subsequently as having viral hepatitis. Hepatitis must be considered when biliary imaging suggests complete common bile duct obstruction.
