Abstract

Biliary bezoar is a rare event that can cause cholangitis and pancreatitis. Biliary bezoar occurs infrequently by food material reflux and bile stasis following choledochoenterostomy, choledochoduodenal fistula, endoscopic sphincterotomy, duodenal diverticula, and because of suture remnants. We describe a phytobezoar in the common bile duct following percutaneous transhepatic large balloon papillary dilatation, which was successfully removed using an endoscopic procedure.
