Intrahepatic bile duct adenomas are rare, benign tumors composed of disorganized but mature peribiliary gland acini and tubules.
Radiologic features of intrahepatic bile duct adenoma: A look at the surface of the liver.
Various parts of the extrahepatic biliary system are initially affected, but intrahepatic bile ducts
are subsequently involved in a significant proportion of patients, even in those who undergo an initially successful Kasai procedure.
