INTRODUCTION: Multiple Biliary Hamartomas are rare and asymptomatic and so are diagnosed less in vivo. They are benign malformation of ductal plate of intrahepatic biliary radicals. Patients are usually asymptomatic and the lesions are an incidental radiological finding. They maybe mistaken with liver metastasis, microabscess and other cystic lesions of liver. We report a 45 year old female who had vague right upper quadrant pain on and off for a year. She was diagnosed as extensive multiple biliary hamartomas on CT and MRI of the abdomen. Tumors markers were negative suggesting absence of malignancy. She was managed with symptomatic treatment and is on regular follow up.
