ULTRASOUND DIAGNOSIS OF CHOLEDOCHAL CYST
AbstractCholedochal cyst is an aneurysmal dilatation of the common bile duct, supraduodenal part being the commonest site. Female predominate with female to male ratio of 4:1. It is more common in oriental races, particularly in Japan. The anomaly is rarely seen in Europe 1 . We submit two cases of choledochal cyst which were diagnosed by ultrasound
