Case Study
Cholecystocolic fistula is a rare billiary-enteric fistula with variable clinical presentation. Despite modern diagnostic tool a high degree of suspicion is required to diagnose it preoperatively. These fistulae are treated by open as well as laparoscopic surgery, with no difference in intraoperative and postoperative complications. We are describing a 50-year-old female patient with the diagnosis of chronic cholecystitis with cholelithiasis, which was investigated with routine lab investigations, and abdominal ultrasonography but none of these gave us any clue to the presence of fistula, were discovered incidentally during an open surgery and were appropriately treated.
