Biloma is an extraductular collection of bile within a defined capsular space. Prior reports have documented an association between biloma and abdominal trauma, and between biloma and iatrogenic injury resulting from abdominal surgery, percutaneous catheter drainage, or transhepatic cholangiogram. To our knowledge, bilomas have not previously been associated with lung cancer. We report a case of spontaneous biloma that developed as a complication of small cell lung cancer.
