IT IS NOW 227 years since cystic dilatation of the common bile duct was reported by Vater.1 Since that time about 1852 cases have been reported. Judd and Greene3 state that one cyst of the common bile duct was found in 17,381 operations on the biliary tract. Many methods for the correction of this condition have been used.4 This report deals with the successful treatment of a cystic dilatation of the comomn bile duct by a Roux en Y anastomosis between the cystic dilatation and the jejunum. This patient has been followed for a period of two years. Furthermore, a normal pregnancy and delivery have occurred since the operation.

REPORT OF CASE  P. F., a 24 year old white housewife, was admitted to St. Luke's Hospital, Chicago, on Jan. 13, 1948. The history revealed episodes of right upper quadrant pain, nausea and vomiting, dating from childhood.
