[Hepatic cysts: a case report and anatomicopathological and clinico-therapeutic considerations]. G Chir. 1996 Nov-Dec;17(11-12):593-6. Boaretto R, Fornaro R, Bertoglio C, Terrizzi A, Carissimi T, Cambiaso C, Ferraris R. The recent observation of a case of non-parasitic cyst of the liver brought the authors to a literature review. A 62 year old male, affected by type 2 diabetes and hypertension, after a CT scan and ETG, underwent resection and "capitonnage" of the cyst. Three months after surgery a CT scan showed a complete repletion of the cavity previously occupied by the cyst as a consequence of regeneration and reorganization of the hepatic parenchyma. In conclusion, hepatic cysts are rare and clinically relevant only when huge. The diagnosis is possible with the use of ETG and CT scan of the abdomen, however, in some cases angiography is also useful. The intervention of choice is the "capitonnage" of the cyst.
