This study aims to review the causes of intrahepatic and extrahepatic bile duct dilatation. Based on review of medical literature, a scientific classification of the causes is proposed. Intrahepatic and extrahepatic bile duct dilatation can be divided into two categories: congenital and acquired. The former includes the five classical Todani’s congenital types. The latter can be sub-classified according to the underlying pathogenesis, the relationship with bile duct lumen/wall/extralumen, or intrabiliary pressure.
