Abstract

Endoscopic sphincterotomy with stone removal is the method of choice for the treatment of choledocholithiasis. The main complications of this procedure are bleeding, pancreatitis, intestinal perforation and cholangitis. Herein, we report on a case of bile peritonitis in a patient who underwent sphincterotomy and stone retrieval. The literature regarding the etiology and management of bile peritonitis is also reviewed.
