A 64-year-old man was referred to our hospital for investigation of thickening of the gallbladder wall and hepatic mass. Repeated endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration examinations of these lesions excluded malignant diseases.

No subsequent recurrence was seen during follow-up. This represents the first report of recurrent hepatic IPT originating from granulomatous cholangitis after resection of xanthogranulomatous cholecystitis and IPT caused by granulomatous cholangitis.
