Nine patients with choledochal cyst have been reviewed. There was a 6:3 preponderance of females. Four patients presented in adulthood. Cholangiocarcinoma developed in three patients with an interval ranging from 2 to 35 years following surgery. The predominant complaint was of abdominal pain and symptoms had been present from weeks up to 28 years. Imaging by sonography may be all that is required in the paediatric age group, but in adults further confirmation of the choledochal cyst and the associated anomalous junction of the pancreatico-biliary duct (AJPB) by direct cholangiography is recommended.
