Cysts of the liver ligaments are extremely rare and cysts of the ligamentum teres of the liver have been sporadically reported in the literature during the last century. The present report describes a case of a symptomatic patient with a cyst of the ligamentum teres of the liver. The patient presented with right upper quadrant pain and indigestion during the last 2 years. Ultrasound and computed tomography scans revealed a water-density mass attached to the anterior abdominal wall, but definite diagnosis could not be reached. The cyst was completely excised during laparotomy. Cysts of the ligamentum teres of the liver, although infrequent, may produce clinical symptoms and require excision. Ultrasound and computed tomography scan preoperatively cannot rule out malignancy, thus exploratory laparotomy and total resection of these lesions are necessary.
