MIRIZZI SYNDROME DIAGNOSED ON MRCP: A CASE REPORT

SHAZIA YUSUF, RAJA AMJAD MAHMOOD, SUNDAS NIAZI.




Abstract

Mirizzi syndrome is a rarely observed phenomenon that results from extrinsic compression of common hepatic duct due to
gallbladder or cystic duct calculi presenting with obstructive jaundice and cholangitis. Mirizzi syndrome is difficult to differentiate
from other serious conditions such as cholangiocarcinoma, biliary strictures and choledocholithiasis clinically and on imaging. Making
a pre-operative diagnosis using imaging modalities is a challenge. MRCP is a non invasive accurate modality for diagnosis of Mirizzi
syndrome.

Key words: Gall Stones, Mirizzi Syndrome, MRCP, Obstructive Jaundice.
