Dr. Andreu Costa's latest publication in the International Journal of Surgical Pathology has just been published. The paper is, "Ciliated Foregut Cyst of the Common Hepatic Duct: An Unusual Mimic of a Type II Choledochal Cyst".


Ciliated foregut cysts typically arise in the liver and pancreas, with rare cases reported to arise in the gallbladder wall. Herein, we describe an unusual case of a patient with a ciliated foregut cyst arising from the wall of the common hepatic duct, which has not been reported previously. As a result of its unique anatomical location, the cyst was mistaken for a type II choledochal cyst on preoperative imaging. The cyst caused intermittent biliary obstruction that resolved following surgical resection.

The abstract can be found on PubMed.
