Jaundice associated with polycystic liver disease.


Jaundice is rarely encountered in polycystic disease of the liver. In the present case, pressure from tense cysts at the hilus of the liver caused a marked narrowing of the common hepatic duct and slowing of bile flow with the formation of stasis stones. Decompression of the cysts and removal of debris in the intrahepatic ducts resulted in a rapid decrease of the serum bilirubin level.
