Objective: To present our experience of non-parasitic hepatic cysts. Design: Retrospective study. Setting: University Hospital, Greece. Subjects: 12 consecutive patients with symptomatic non-parasitic hepatic cysts operated on during the 7-year period 1990-97 inclusive. Interventions: Wide unroofing of the hepatic cysts. Main outcome measures: Persistence or recurrence of symptoms and recurrence of cysts. Results: Symptoms persisted or recurred in 2/12 patients and cysts recurred in 2/9 who had ultrasound scans. Conclusion: Surgical treatment of non-parasitic hepatic cysts was effective and safe.
