Case description

The cholecystocolonic fistula is an atypical variant of biliary disease. When presenting with symptomatic disease, surgical treatment with cholecystectomy, fistula takedown and possible colonic resection are indicated. Cholecystocolic fistula is a rare biliary-enteric fistula with a variable clinical presentation. Despite modern diagnostic tools, a high degree of suspicion is required to diagnose it preoperatively. Biliary-enteric fistulae have been found in 0.9% of patients undergoing biliary tract surgery.
