Are comets known to exist in other star systems?

Just what the title states - not sure this is the correct forum for it anyway..

Are comets a feature unique to our Solar System? Or, are comets/cometary clouds detected around discovered/observed extra-solar systems too? If they were detected elsewhere, how do such cometary clouds affect discovery by perturbation?
