Abstract

Peribiliary cysts are cystic dilatations of the extramural glands of the intrahepatic biliary tree. This disorder is uncommon and is usually asymptomatic. However, it may cause extrinsic biliary compression and consequently, obstructive jaundice. This paper describes 2 such cases presenting with jaundice. The etiology, natural history, investigation findings and treatment of this disorder are also discussed.
