  • A 64-year-old man presented to the emergency department with a 2-week history of progressive jaundice.
  • His medical history included an episode of necrotizing pancreatitis about 6 months previous to the jaundice onset.
  • Abdominal ultrasound suggested dilatation of the intrahepatic bile ducts.
  • Contrast-enhanced MDCT of the abdomen and pelvis was performed to rule out biliary obstructions.
