A female patient, 59-year-old, was complaining of abdominal pain in the right hypochondrium and mesogastrium for 6 months. Ultrasonography and abdominal computed tomography were performed, both confirming a large hepatic cyst (10.6 cm × 7.6 cm × 7.3 cm) on the left lobe. A hybrid minilaparoscopic resection was proposed. We opted for unroofing the cyst, and the procedure was uneventfully performed, with a total surgical time of 60 min. In the post-operative the patient did well, with minimal abdominal pain, being discharged on the 5th post-operative day, after drain removal due to the use of intravenous antibiotic therapy.
