Choledochal cyst is a dilation that encloses the intrahepatic or both extra- and intrahepatic portions of the biliary ducts. Postnatally, ultrasonography is the initial diagnostic modality of choice, allowing for precise measurements of intra- or extrahepatic duct dilatation and identification of stones and sludge. Symptoms depend on the age at presentation. Common bile duct malformations should be considered as a...

A 5-year-old male patient was admitted due to fever, and right upper abdominal pain for 2 weeks. He showed severe right upper quadrant tenderness on palpation, hepatomegaly 5 cm below the right costal margin, no mass, and no splenomegaly. On biochemical studies, ALT was 380IU/ml, AST 462IU/ml, alkaline phosphatase 1,069IU/ml, γGTP 239IU/ml, and total bilirubin 2.1mg/dl. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) showed cylindrical dilatations of...

Je Woo Kim, Hyun Chul Bae, Ki Sup Chung, Seok Joo Han, Eui Ho Hwang
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1997;40(7):1010-1014.   Published online July 15, 1997
Choledochal cysts are congenital or acquired lesions of the biliary tree with a cystic dilatation of the bile duct. We experienced a choledochal cyst accompanying acute pancreatitis caused by anomalous pancreaticobiliary ductal union(APBDU) in a 2 year old boy. The choledochal cyst associated with APBDU is rarely encountered in the clinical field, and thus we report this case with the presentation of abdominal ultrasonogram, computed...

Autoimmune hepatitis in children is a rare and severe inflammatory disease of unknown etiology, and progress to cirrohosis and liver failure, generally is responsive to immunosuppressive therapy. It is more prevalent in women than men, and characterized by the presence of circulating autoantibodies, a high serum globulin. Extrahepatic manifestations such as thyroiditis, ulcerative colitis, glomerulonephritis and autoimmune hemolytic anemia, are associated. We report, to our...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 1995;38(12):1629-1637.   Published online December 15, 1995
Purpose : Extrahepatic biliary atresia, neonatal hepatitis, Allagille syndrome are most common primary causes of the neonatal cholestasis. Infantile choledochal cyst is another primary disease presenting with neonatal cholestasis but its incidence is so low that it has been reported rarely. Choledochal cyst in infancy has been known to have clinically and anatomically different characteristics from ones after infancy. Thus...
