Objective: To inform our experience in the diagnosis and treatment of six patients with cystic dilation of the biliary tract.
Setting: Third level health care hospital.
Description of patients: There were four women and two men, their ages ranged from 45 to 57 years, average 50 years. Predominating symptoms were pain and jaundice. Four patients received surgical treatment, in two a cholecystectomy plus resection of the cyst and hepato-jejuno-anastomosis were performed and, for the other two, cholecystectomy plus choledochotomy with extraction of gallstones. The other two patients were treated medically.
Conclusion: Although congenital cystic dilation of the choledochus is an infrequent entity, it should be taken into account by the surgeon to reach a diagnosis.

Key words: Gallbladder, bile ducts, cysts.
