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: Exploratory laparotomy with excision of a cystic liver mass attached to the inferior portion of the right hepatic lobe revealed a benign, simple epithelial cyst lined by flattened, squamoid-appearing epithelium (Figure 4). The wall was composed of fibrovascular tissue and contained small nests of benign hepatocytes. These findings supported the diagnosis of a SLC. The infant had an uneventful postoperative course and was discharged home shortly after.
