This paper describes 2 cases of a rare biliary cystic disease. A patient with Caroli's disease and another with bile duct swellingthat were initially diagnosed by ultrasound and power color Doppler. Diagnosis was later confirmed by additional instrumental examinations. The first case was totally asymptomatic and only identified by chance, while the second was symptomatic and determined severe pain and dyspepsia. In both pathologies US B mode imaging and power color Doppler examination revealed the characteristic lesions of the intrahepatic biliary tree diseases and ruled out their vascular nature and communication with the portal and arterial tree.
