A Rare Case of Choledochal Cyst Connecting Intra- And Extra-Hepatic Duct
Choledochal cysts are rare congenital dilatations of the extra and/or intrahepatic bile ducts. This disease often presents non-specific symptoms that perplex early diagnosis. We report a rare anatomical location of a choledochal cyst in a 5-year-old female patient, and it is a variant of the classical types of the hepatic duct cysts. Awareness of this type of variation in choledochal cysts would aid preoperative diagnosis, more accurate interpretation of imaging results and surgical planning.
