Choledochal cysts may be congenital (present at birth) or may form later. The majority of diagnoses occur before the age of ten, with females being diagnosed more often than males.
Although the exact source of these cysts is unknown, experts suspect they are caused by an improper link between the pancreatic and hepatic ducts.
This abnormal linkage causes pancreatic juice to reflux into the biliary system, which may be the cause of cyst development.
