Abstract

Caroli's disease is a congenital malformation which shows communicating dilatation of intrahepatic bile ducts and can involve the liver either in a diffuse manner or in a localized fashion. It is known to be associated with various renal malformations. We describe an autopsy proven case of Caroli's disease (type 1) without any associated kidney changes in a 3-year old child in whom the presenting CT scan findings were predominantly due to the complications such as cholangitic abscess and the finding of main disease like communicating ductal dilatation was only subtle.
