Presence of stones in the intrahepatic bile ducts is a common problem especially in East Asia. We report two cases: the first is a man who through several years had repeated episodes of obstructive jaundice. He underwent multiple procedures due to the recurrences. The second case is a woman who had recurrences and serious complications. A detailed evaluation and early diagnosis of each case are essential for a good treatment, which is challenging due to the high rate of recurrence and complications.
