We report on a case of 61 year old female who presented with upper abdominal discomfort. Ultrasound and computerized tomography scan revealed a liver cyst resembling a hydatid cyst. Signs of mild biliary obstruction were present in laboratory tests. At operation, a cystadenoma of the left liver protruding into the common bile duct was found. Left hepatectomy with resection of the common bile duct and right side cholangiojejunostomy were performed.
