Multiple biliary hamartomas are rare benign malformations of the intrahepatic bile ducts first described by von Meyenburg in 1918. This due to the developmental malformation of the interlobular bile duct in the liver during the embryonic period, leading to the formation of cyst-like structures of different sizes. Imaging has an important role in the diagnosis and differential diagnosis. A correct diagnosis might be obtained when typical imaging findings are present even without a histological confirmation.
