Caroli disease (CD, OMIM #600643) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by polycystic segmental dilatation of the intrahepatic bile ducts and extreme variability in age of onset and clinical manifestations. When congenital hepatic fibrosis is associated with the polycystic dilatation of the biliary tract, the condition is referred as Caroli syndrome. The disease is thought to be caused by pathogenic variants in the PKHD1 gene (OMIM *606702).

Abstract

Caroli disease (CD, OMIM #600643) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by polycystic segmental dilatation of the intrahepatic bile ducts and extreme variability in age of onset and clinical manifestations. When congenital hepatic fibrosis is associated with the polycystic dilatation of the biliary tract, the condition is referred as Caroli syndrome. The disease is thought to be caused by pathogenic variants in the PKHD1 gene (OMIM *606702).
