Choledochal cysts are congenital cystic dilatations of the hepatobiliary tree and usually presents before 16 years of age. Symptoms may be that of cholangitis, jaundice, pancreatitis and stone formation. Infants may present with an intra-abdominal mass. In countries where hydatid disease is endemic, this rare condition may be overlooked. Delay in the treatment of choledochal cyst maybe due to misdiagnosis as hepatitis, incomplete investigation of the abdominal pain. Early diagnosis is preferred as the cyst needs to be completely excised because of the risk of the cyst turning malignant
