POST-TRAUMATIC bile cysts of the liver are extremely rare. A search of the literature reveals only 4 cases which have been recorded.1 The nonparasitic bile cyst could properly be classified as a pseudocyst by comparing it with the pseudocyst of the pancreas, which does not have an epithelial lining. Nonparasitic cysts of the liver, which are not the direct result of trauma, are not so rare. Davis2 reviewed the literature on nonparasitic cysts in 1937 and gathered 499 cases, of which 241 were classified as cases of cystic disease of the liver with multiple cysts, 187 as cases of solitary unilocular cysts and 20 as cases of solitary and monolocular cysts. The remaining 51 were not classified. Clagett and Hawkins3 have recently reported the successful removal of a multilocular cyst by extirpation of the entire left lobe of the liver.
