Abstract

Cyst rupture is one of the rarest complications of choledochal cysts (CC). We report an 8-year-old boy with CC rupture leading to bile peritonitis following repeated esophageal dilatations for corrosive stricture, and discuss how the esophageal dilatation procedures might constitute a predisposing factor for CC perforation.
