The ciliated hepatic foregut cysts (CHFC) are uncommon benign lesions with columnar ciliated epithelium covering a connective lapse tissue. They are solitary uniloculate cysts localized in the left lobe of the liver. The diagnosis is made occasionally during autopsy or imaging studies for not related symptoms. The Authors report a case of CHFC with a review of the literature that allowed them to find only 60 cases.
