SUMMARY Non-parasitic cysts of the liver, although a rather rare and asymptomatic condition, often require curative intervention, and their management concentrates a great surgical interest. Over the last 30-year period 25 such patients (21 cases with solitary cyst and 4 cases with multiple cysts) were managed by open operation. Total excision of the solitary cyst was possible in only 3 suitable cases, while the fenestration technique was performed in the remaining 18 cases. In 6 cases with large lesions, the residual cavity was filled by omentum placement. The short- and long-term results were satisfactory in all but two cases with recurrence, in which re-operation was necessary. Thus, the fenestration is considered a reasonable approach for the management of such cysts. Key words: Liver cysts, congenital cysts, simple cysts, benign hepatic cysts, non-parasitic cysts, cystic liver disease (EN)
