Core Tip

Core Tip: Intrahepatic multicystic biliary hamartoma (MCBH) is a relatively rare disease with relatively few cases reported in the English literature. We review previously reported articles on MCBH on our essay, summarizing some of their characteristics and treatment. More importantly, we studied and interpreted a case that we found during our clinical work. In this essay, we describe his clinical manifestations, imaging performance, laboratory test results, pathological manifestations and surgery. We also discuss and summarize the characteristics of MCBH. We hope to better diagnose MCBH through imaging examination and pathological examination through our essay.
