Abstract

Mirizzi syndrome with a biliobiliary fistula (Mirizzi syndrome type II) is a rare complication of a long-standing gallbladder stone disease. It is even rarer for a gallbladder stone to migrate through a biliobiliary fistula into the common duct. We encountered this interesting complication of Mirizzi syndrome type II in an 86 year-old female patient. A large gallbladder stone migrated into, and impacted into the distal common bile duct through a cholecystohepaticodochal fistula. The stone was resistant to mechanical lithotripsy and was treated with biliary endoprosthesis and oral bile acids.
