The bile duct of Luschka (BDL) is an anatomic anomaly that is an important cause of bile leakage after bile duct surgery. We report a case of bile duct carcinoma with dilated BDL that was diagnosed by ultrasonography (US). An 83-year-old man presented with an obstructive jaundice. US on admission revealed the presence of a solid hypoechoic mass in the bile duct at the hepatic duct confluence and a branch of the bile duct, about 2-4 mm in diameter, distinct from the dilated right anterior hepatic duct slightly upstream of the tumor. This branch had a spiral structure, extended along the gallbladder bed on the surface of segment 5 (S5) of the liver, and emanated small branches that entered the hepatic parenchyma. There has been no previous report of delineation of BDL by preoperative US. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Clin Ultrasound, 2012.
