Core Tip Congenital intrahepatic bile duct dilatation with or without fibrosis is called Caroli syndrome or Caroli disease, respectively. We performed a systematic review of the current literature to investigate the incidence of malignant transformation, risk factors, and surgical treatment options. There were only 12 retrospective cohort studies reporting 561 patients, including 37 patients with malignancy, so an exact preoperative diagnostic work-up, risk factors and preferred surgical treatment were impossible to conclude due to lack of data. Overall survival rates after one year were low (36%), and recurrence rate was high (75%) during the observation period.
