ABSTRACT
We report a case of ciliated hepatic foregut cyst which was incidentally found in a 64 year-old man. The cyst, 6 cm in diameter, was unilocular, solitary and was located in the medial segment of left lobe, just below the Glisson's capsule. Microscopically, the cyst wall consisted of 4 layers; pseudostratified ciliated columnar epithelium, subepithelial loose connective tissue, smooth muscle bundles and an outermost fibrous capsule. Although cartilage or subepithelial sero-mucous glands were absent, the morphologic features of the cyst correspond with those of an incomplete form of brochogenic cyst.
Key Words: Ciliated foregut cyst; Foregut cyst; Enteric cyst; Liver
