Solitary Septated Simple Liver Cyst in a Newborn Infant.

Ropp E, Alviedo N, Kent A, Cohen I - ACG Case Rep J (2015)

Bottom Line: Postnatal imaging revealed a septated, single cystic structure causing mass effect on the common bile duct and partially obstructing the inferior vena cava.Treatment of a solitary septated SLC was successful by laparoscopic total excision.The infant had an uncomplicated postsurgical course and has done well.

ABSTRACT
Simple liver cysts (SLC) are generally rare and are typically symptomatic when detected in infancy. We present a case of a newborn infant in whom fetal ultrasound and MRI revealed a cystic structure. Postnatal imaging revealed a septated, single cystic structure causing mass effect on the common bile duct and partially obstructing the inferior vena cava. Treatment of a solitary septated SLC was successful by laparoscopic total excision. The infant had an uncomplicated postsurgical course and has done well.

Mentions: A 26-year-old obese woman with hypertension and anemia presented for a routine prenatal ultrasound at week 17 of gestation. Fetal ultrasound revealed a pelvic cystic mass measuring 3.4 × 2.9 × 3.7 cm. Fetal MRI at 22 weeks gestation showed a large cystic structure within most of the abdominal cavity measuring 7.8 × 5.3 × 6 cm, displacing the right kidney posteriorly with compression of the bladder and lungs, possibly originating from the left kidney (Figure 1). Abdominal circumference measured >97%.
