Non-parasitic hepatic cysts are rare in infants and children. Advances in antenatal imaging have improved their detection, while development of laparoscopic techniques has expanded options for treatment. We present a case of an antenatally diagnosed non-parasitic hepatic cyst in a neonate, which was successfully excised laparoscopi-cally with no recurrence.
