Abstract

Caroli's syndrome is a condition of cystic dilation of intrahepatic bile ducts that communicate with the extrahepatic biliary tree. Patients with Caroli's syndrome are prone to develop several complications. These include bacterial cholangitis, biliary sludge, calculi, and cholangiocarcinoma. We describe an adult patient with Caroli's syndrome in whom spontaneous rupture of a bile duct developed with consequent biliary peritonitis, which was successfully managed with endoscopic stent placement.
