Abstract
Caroli’s disease was first described by Caroli in 1958 and characterized by segmental cystic dilatation of the intrahepatic bile ducts. There is stasis of bile with stone formation in the dilatated ducts, giving rise to frequent attacks of pain and cholangitis. In the past, diagnosis of the Caroli’s disease is rarely established prior to operation and subsequent cholangiography. Recently, with ultrasonography, computerized tomography, radioisotope scan and percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography, it is possible to diagnose preoperatively and plan appro- priate intervention. We experienced a case of Caroli’s disease in a 8-year old girl who was admitted because of recurrent abdominal pain.
