ABSTRACT: Spontaneous perforation of a choledochal cyst is an uncommon pediatric surgical emergency. We present two cases with diverse presentation, one with acute abdomen and the other with biliary peritonitis. Both were managed differently, one with T tube drainage of the perforation and the other with a cholecystostomy. The causes of choledochal perforation and management protocol are discussed. It should be considered as differential diagnosis in children presenting with acute abdomen.
