Abstract

Background : Gallstone ileus is a rare complication of cholelithiasis and is an uncommon cause of intestinal obstruction accounting for 1%–4% of mechanical bowel obstructions. This usually results from luminal impaction of one or more gallstone.

Case Presentation : A 86-year-old male presented with the history of bilious vomiting for 15 days and abdominal distension for 8 days and diagnosed as a case of intestinal obstruction due to gall stone ileus. He was treated surgically by laparotomy followed by enterotomy and removal of gall stone were performed from the proximal ileum.

Conclusion : Early diagnosis and treatment are important otherwise adverse effect of mechanical bowel obstruction leads to bad prognosis.
