Congenital cystic dilatation of the common bile duct as a cause of primary bile duct stone

American Journal of Surgery
Y MatsumotoI Honjo


Of the 101 patients with congenital cystic dilatation of the common bile duct, eighty-eight with adult-type cysts are reported on. The association of primary bile duct stone and adult-type cyst of this anomaly is discussed and found to be higher than previously recognized. In the cases without calculi, abnormal arrangement of the pancreaticobiliary ductal system is indicated to play an important role in the manifestation of the symptom. The anatomic and clinical features and the results of treatment for this type of cyst are reviewed.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
