Abstract

A choledochal cyst is an uncommon anomaly of the biliary system requiring surgical intervention. A case of a choledochal cyst imaged by computed tomography following oral administration of cholangiography contrast material (Telepaque) is reported. Telepaque-enhanced computed tomography is an easy, noninvasive method to demonstrate pertinent preoperative anatomy in cases of choledochal cysts, and is especially useful in the pediatric patient.
