Cystic Disorders in the Biliary Tract

Cysts are abnormal pockets or accumulation of membranous tissues that can form anywhere in the body. When cysts are formed in the bile ducts, they are called biliary cysts or choledochal cysts and can lead to a host of complications if not treated properly. This condition often leads to obstruction and retention of bile in the bile ducts.
