Abstract

The case of a 58-year-old woman who was diagnosed with the localized type of Caroli's disease is presented. This disease involves the whole of the left half of the liver. A left hepatectomy was followed by complete resolution of symptoms. The current article suggests that hepatic resection may be aggressively performed in selected patients with the localized form of Caroli's disease
