Abstract

A cholecystocolonic fistula is an uncommon late complication of chronic gallstone disease. Although it may cause acute life-threatening complications such as bowel obstruction or massive hemorrhaging, its accurate preoperative diagnosis may be difficult due to minimal or nonspecific symptoms. Cholecystocolonic fistulas have been diagnosed by various methods, including ERCP. However, the diagnosis of a cholecystocolonic fistula using MRCP has not been reported in the literature. In this case report, we describe a case of a cholecystocolonic fistula detected by MRCP.
