Case Study
ABSTRACT
Choledochal cysts are rare congenital anomalies. The incidence in the population is from 1:13000 to 1:200000. More than 3 000 cases have been published in this field, mainly in Japan.This case study presents an adult, twenty-five year-old man who was admitted to our clinic complaining of pains caused by biliary colics in the past month. He had been treated several times before. A thorough clinical examination was performed after he was admitted. The clinical examination, including ultrasonography and computer tomography, together with the clinical laboratory data showed that he had a choledochal cyst Type I. The treatment was surgical. The operative treatment included a right subcostal laparotomy to excise the cyst and holecystectomy. A hepaticojejunal anastomosis by a Roux-en-Y loop and a jejuno-jejuno anastomosis were performed. Post-operative recovery was without any complications.
