Biliary cystadenomas with ovarian like mesenchymal stroma are rare benign cystic neoplasms of liver which have premalignant potential. A 58-year-old woman presented for the evaluation of a 3.6 cm cyst compressing the hepatic duct, jaundice and abnormal liver enzymes. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) and stent placement provided symptomatic improvement. The patient was successfully treated by laparoscopic common bile duct excision with cholecystectomy choledochoduodenostomy.
