MARTINEZ GARCIA, Geovedy  and  DEL VALLE ALONSO, Orlando. Asymptomatic isolated polycystic liver disease. Rev cubana med [online]. 2020, vol.59, n.3, e492.  Epub Nov 10, 2020. ISSN 0034-7523.

Isolated adult polycystic liver disease is rare autosomal dominant congenital disease of the intrahepatic bile ducts. It is more frequent in women, and the cysts acquire their maximum expression from the fifth decade of life. Despite the sometimes impressive physical and radiological findings, in only a minority of patients, the disease progresses over the years to advanced liver disease or develops complications as a result of massive hepatomegaly. We report here the case of a male patient who is admitted with the diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction, asymptomatic from the abdominal point of view and he was diagnosed with polycystic liver disease.

Keywords : polycystic liver disease; cysts; computed tomography; ultrasound.
