Abstract

A 71-year-old man presented to our hospital with obstructive jaundice, found to be caused by a huge liver cyst which was centrally located and ridingon the hilum. Percutaneous transhepatic cyst drainage was performed, following which obstruction of the bile duct was relieved and the jaundice subsided. As jaundice recurred after removal of the drainage tube, the patient underwent deroofing, since when he has remained well. Only 13 cases of livercysts producing obstructive jaundice have been reported in the English literature, most of which were characteristically enormous, located centrally,and riding on the hilum, Liver cysts possessing such features are likely to cause obstructive jaundice by compressing the hepatic hilum. Cyst drainage is helpful for ameliorating the jaundice and making an accurate diagnosis; however, subsequent deroofing or injection therapy is necessary to prevent recurrence.
