Congenital liver cyst is an uncommon disease in infancy and is usually asymptomatic. However, even rarer are congenital giant liver cysts which by virtue of their size are problematic. We discuss a case of a newborn with a giant hepatic cyst who was successfully treated surgically but experienced a postoperative bile leak as a complication. We review the management of this entity and propose an algorithm of care.
