Hepatolithiasis is the presence of bile duct stones within the intrahepatic bile ducts, specifically before the confluence of the right and left hepatic ducts. 

Hepatolithiasis is common Asia and the Pacific, with a prevalence of ~40%. It is rare in the West with a prevalence of ~1% 1

Hepatolithiasis can occur with or without the concomitant presence of cholelithiasis or choledocholithiasis
