A 16-year old female presented to hospital with abdominal pain. Features on computed tomography raised the possibility of biliary cystadenoma or cystadenocarcinoma. She underwent a liver resection, and histopathology confirmed a serous biliary cystadenoma. This case is presented to highlight the radiological features of this uncommon pre-malignant condition as well as to summarize a management algorithm for cystic liver lesions.
