Author(s): Dr. Amol Vaijanath Dahiphale

PRESENTATION OF CASE Obstruction of common bile duct due to a ‘Forgotten Stent’ with stone formation is a rare entity. Choledocholithiasis is evident in approximately 10–15% patients with gallstones, more commonly in secondary.1 However primary common bile duct (CBD) stones are more common in Asia. Choledocholithiasis can be treated by endoscopy or surgery. Recent trend is to do ERCP primarily and stone extraction with or without CBD stenting.
