Materials & Methods
A 20 year old patient underwent a laparoscopic cholecystectomy for symptomatic gallstones and discharged home the same
day. She returned to the hospital 48 hours after surgery complaining
of abdominal pain. A CT scan performed showed a large abdominal fluid collection compatible with a biloma. An ERCP
showed an interruption of the bile duct with contrast extravasation.
