The occurrence of intracystic hemorrhage in benign liver cysts is usually seen in huge solitary cysts in older individuals. Hemorrhage complicating one of the multiple cysts has rarely been reported. We report a case of multiple simple hepatic cysts with intracystic hemorrhage complicating one of the cysts. A 60-year-old woman was admitted with complaints of abdominal discomfort of 6 months duration and abdominal pain with increasing intensity of 2 months duration, not responding to analgesics and was anicteric. On thorough evaluation, a diagnosis of complicated liver cyst was made and her severe symptoms necessitated intervention. Per-operatively, multiple thick walled huge cysts were seen on the surface of the liver. The largest one in the right lobe was complicated by hemorrhage. The cysts were aspirated and deroofed. There were no solid components or biliary communications in the cysts.
