The Authors present 2 cases of solitary cysts of the liver, both treated with a right hepatectomy. Hepatic resection is justified when the cyst is of large dimensions and also resolves the problem of differential diagnosis with cystadenoma (which was simultaneously present in the second case) for which more conservative surgical therapy does not preclude relapse or degeneration.
