Non-parasitic hepatic cysts containing bile are rare entities and pose a challenge in surgical management as they cannot be managed by simple de-roofing. The biliary communication to the cyst cavity should either be closed meticulously, or these cysts should be managed by an internal drainage procedure such as cystoenterostomy. We report a 17-year-old Indian girl, in which such a cyst was treated by cystojejunostomy.
