Rupture of the extrahepatic bile duct due to blunt trauma abdomen is an infrequently encountered condition which will tax ingenuity of the surgeon. Our aim here is to highlight one such unique injury to common bile duct and outline appropriate method of management. The complexity of injury is increased by the degree of involvement of duodenal wall, pancreatic duct and pancreas. Injuries that include ampullary area are rare, therefore require special consideration. Case report demonstrates specific injury to common bile duct and duodenal wall without injury to pancreatic duct.
