Ampullary Carcinoma is a distinct type amongst the four subsites of Periampullary Carcinoma due to its good biological behaviour. Ampullary Carcinoma arises within the Ampullary Complex and is recognized sooner due to earlier presentation with obstructive jaundice. It contributes to 0.2% of all gastro-intestinal malignancies. They have a better resection and survival rate compared to pancreatic variety of Periampullary Carcinoma. Long term survival beyond 10 years, after curative resection, has not been well described in the literature. We report a case of Ampullary Carcinoma presenting initially with obstructive jaundice and surviving for 14 years despite recurrence of the tumor. A short review of the literature is presented.
