Abstract

A type III choledochal cyst, known as a choledochocele, is rare. It is defined as cystic dilatation of the distal common bile duct, protruding into the duodenal lumen. Surgical treatment of a choledochocele remains controversial because it has a low incidence for malignancy compared with other choledochal cysts. While there have been few reported cases of choledochocele with malignancy, here we report our experience of a choledochocele with high-grade dysplasia and provide a literature review of the field.
