We report the case of a 31-year old woman with recurrent cholangitis secondary to hepatolithiasis. The stones were composed of calcium bilirrubinate. The patient also had a supernumerary hepatic lobe connected to the inferior aspect of the segment III of the liver. The role of the supernumerary hepatic lobe in the development of hepatolithiasis is unclear and may be coincidental.
