Arshad Rashid, Suhail Khuroo, Sartaj Hassan Shah, Farzana Khuroo.


Abstract

Cholecystocutaneous fistula is a rare complication of cholecystitis. We report a case of a 75-year man who presented with features of anterior abdominal abscess, which on further exploration was diagnosed to be an external biliary fistula. This case illustrates that any cutaneous abscess in the right hypochondrium should be viewed with caution and investigated thoroughly.

Key words: Cholecystocutaneous fistula; Acute cholecystitis; Biliary fistula; Empyema; Abdominal Wall abscess.
