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.
