This is a case report of a 50 years old woman, who presented with upper abdominal pain, vomiting and two episodes of jaundice in five months. Computerised tomographic scan revealed a cyst in the 4th segment of the liver. Peroperatively it was found to be a simple liver cyst arising from the left hepatic duct. The cyst was excised. Peroperative cholangiogram revealed obstruction in the common hepatic duct. A polyp in the common hepatic duct, causing obstruction, was excised. The presence of liver cyst with hepatic duct polyp is a rare association.
