Choledochal cysts are rare cystic dilatations of the biliary tree. Most of them are congenital and usually manifest in early childhood but some may manifest later in adult life. Though, the cause is uncertain, these cysts are usually referred for surgical resection because of their association with recurrent inflammation, infection and malignancy [1]. Traditionally choledochal cysts are classified into 5 main types. Cysts of cystic duct are a rare entity which have been sometimes described as Type VI choledochal cyst according to modified Todani's classification [2]. Till 2009 only 14 such cases have been reported [3]. We describe a rare case of type VI choledochal cyst i.e. cyst of cystic duct, which was treated successfully by laparoscopic resection.
