The congenital hepatic fibrosis is a rare condition defined pathologically by the presence within the line of bands of fibrous tissue which after contain linear or circular spaces lined by bile duct cells, It is commonly associated with intrahepatic portal hypertension but hepatocellular function is almost always preserved. The prinicipal clinical features of this disease are abdominal distension, firm hepatomegaly, splenomegaly, hypersplenism and hematemesis or melena due to alimentary bleeding secondary to portal hypertension. We experienced two cases of congenital hepatic fibrosis confirmed by liver biopsy and present with the brief review of related literature.
