Author information

  • 13rd Department of Surgery, 2nd Faculty of Medicine, Medical University of Warsaw, ul. Stepińska 19/25, Warsaw, Poland.


A 69-year-old woman was admitted to our Department with the diagnosis of liver cyst. She had previously undergone liver cyst fenestration 10 years before. After abdominal spiral CT, the patient was qualified for laparotomy. A cystic formation was localized in the central part of the liver, in the 4th segment and was found to compress the hilar bile ducts. A 4.5 bisegmentectomy was performed. During the postoperative course, a biliary fistula was observed, which resolved spontaneously. The treatment was also complicated by myocardial infarction. The patient was discharged in good condition 30 days postoperatively. The pathological diagnosis revealed cystadenocarcinoma.
