Abstract:

Gallstone ileus is a rare, but potentially life-threatening cause of intestinal obstruction. Furthermore, the varied clinical presentation and the non-specific laboratory findings make this condition especially challenging to diagnose and manage in a timely fashion. However, due to the increased associated morbidity and mortality, maintaining a high index of suspicion, ordering the necessary imaging, and immediate surgical management are critical. Even the slightest delay in diagnosis, could lead to catastrophic complications including but not limited to bowel perforation, septic shock, and cardiac arrest. We present an interesting case of small bowel obstruction due to gallstone ileus and cholecysto-duodenal fistula.
