A case of non-parasitic hepatic cyst is presented that was diagnosed in utero by ultrasonography. Postnatal ultrasound and computed tomography confirmed the diagnosis. At laparotomy, the cyst was dissected free from the liver. The postoperative course was uneventful. Prenatal diagnosis enables elective surgery to be performed, preventing future complications.
