Diagnostic Challenge in a Cystic Lesion of the Epigastrium: A Case Report
AbstractA diagnosis of cystic lesion of epigastrium is challenging without strong evidence from history and physical examination. A 33-year-old lady has an epigastric mass without hepato-pancreaticobiliary symptoms, was unable to be diagnosed through radiological assessment and biochemical markers. She was diagnosed with hepatobiliary cystadenoma through intraoperative assessment. We present a case of biliary cystadenoma with diagnostic challenge.
