Cholecystoduodenal fistula is the complication of gallstone and it is difficult to diagnose this condition preoperatively, which is the reason for conversion of laparoscopic to open cholecystectomy. Earlier laparoscopic cholecystectomy was considered unsuitable for such difficult bilioenteric procedures. The laparoscope is fast becoming an important tool for the general surgeon, it make us capable of handling the unforeseen events. This review article is to demonstrate the cholecystoduodenal fistula is not the contraindication for the laparoscopy, now it can be performed without higher rate of risk with the innovation of better modalities available. The goal of study is to introduce the proper awareness in laparoscopic surgeons regarding the feasibility and safety of the procedure.
