ABSTRACT
INTRODUCTION: Biliary cystadenoma is a rare multilocular tumour of the liver derived from the biliary epithelium. The incidence is less than 0.05% of intrahepatic non-parasitic cystic disease. CASE REPORT: A 42 year old lady presented with one month history of epigastric mass. The mass gradually increased in size and ultrasound and computed tomography examinations confirmed the lesion at segment 4 of the liver. Aspiration was performed and there was recurrence. Histological examination was inconclusive. Subsequently, she underwent marsupalization and deroofing. The histopathology confirmed biliary cystadenoma. CONCLUSION: The difficulties and challenges in making the diagnosis are highlighted.
