Hydatid cyst most commonly involves the liver. Intrabiliary rupture is one of the complications of hepatic hydatidosis. We present a case of 45-year-old lady with a large hydatid cyst occupying the left lobe of the liver with jaundice and upper gastrointestinal pressure symptoms. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography revealed a large hepatic cyst with rupture of contents into the left hepatic duct. The patient underwent laparoscopic excision of the cyst with closure of the biliary communication. Bilious drainage was observed from intra-cavitory drain in the postoperative period for which patient underwent endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography with selective left duct stenting following which bile output decreased over 1-week. The communication between the cyst and the biliary tree varies from a small communication to a frank intrabiliary rupture. Laparoscopic treatment is an effective mode of treatment for biliary fistulas complicating hepatic hydatid cyst in well-selected patients.
