Simple hepatic cysts are relatively common in the general population but rarely manifest clinically. Cysts causing clinical symptoms are usually large in size and affect patients over 50 years of age. The lesions are congenital and diagnosis is based on ultrasonography results supplemented by CT with contrast medium as required. Candidates for surgical treatment show clinical symptoms confirmed by initial diagnosis using imaging examination techniques, following exclusion of other potential causes of the disorder. Due to significant advancement of minimally invasive techniques, patients with hepatic cysts may be successfully treated using laparoscopy, which is nowadays a method of choice. A case of giant hepatic cyst managed using laparoscopy is presented below.
