Hepatolithiasis is one of the most complex stone disease of the hepatobiliary system. The disease causes significant damage to the liver including the chance of developing a cholangiocarcinoma. Though the disease is rampant in East Asian countries isolated cases are seen even on the Indian subcontinent. Since experience is lacking in our country to treat this uncommon condition awareness of this condition will enable the surgeon diagnose and develop a proper surgical treatment plan which best suits the patient depending upon the severity of the disease process. A brief review of the etiopathogenesis, diagnosis and management is presented in this paper.
