TORRES-ZEVALLOS, Hernando; SANCHEZ-GAMBETTA, Sergio; MENDIVIL ZAPATA, Rolando  and  VALCARCEL SALDANA, María. Intrahepatic Lithiasis. Rev. gastroenterol. Perú [online]. 2008, vol.28, n.1, pp.65-69. ISSN 1022-5129.

Presence of stones in the intrahepatic bile ducts is a common problem especially in East Asia. We report two cases: the first is a man who through several years had repeated episodes of obstructive jaundice. He underwent multiple procedures due to the recurrences. The second case is a woman who had recurrences and serious complications. A detailed evaluation and early diagnosis of each case are essential for a good treatment, which is challenging due to the high rate of recurrence and complications.

Keywords : hepatolithiasis; obstructive jaundice; liver resection.
