We have described a rare case of Caroli syndrome in a 46-year-old woman. Laboratory tests showed increased levels of aspartate transaminase (AST), alanine transaminase (ALT), Gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT) and alkaline phosphatase. MRI of the upper abdomen showed an abnormal hepatic morphology due to atrophy of the right lobe and hypertrophy of segment IV and left lobe, and cystic dilatations of the intrahepatic bile ducts. The characteristic abnormalities of liver morphology and the cystic dilatations of the intrahepatic bile ducts suggested the diagnosis of Caroli syndrome. Due to aerobilia, an unenhanced CT of the upper abdomen was performed. CT showed few biliary stones within dilated bile duct.


KEY WORDS: Caroli disease - Liver Diseases - Hepatic fibrosis, congenital
