Cystic biliary atresia (BA) is a rare but an important type of BA. An antenatally detected cystic lesion at the porta hepatis raises the suspicion of cystic BA. It is very important to differentiate this from choledochal cyst in infants with cholestasis and cystic lesions. This case report outlines the clinical presentation and radiological findings of an infant who had an antenatally detected intra-abdominal cystic mass, thought to be a choledochal cyst.
