ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: There are only few cases reported till date of de novo choledocholithiasis secondary to retained or forgotten common bile duct stent1,2,3.  A 45 years old female patient with chronic abdominal pain and progressive jaundice was investigated and found to have CBD stent in situ along with a large CBD calculus. Stent along with the calculus was removed by choledocholithotomy and choledochoduodenostomy made by open surgery. The stent acted as the nidus for lithogenesis for which the term ‘stentolith’ has been coined1.

Key Words: Stentolith, Choledocholithiasis, Obstructive Jaundice, CBD stent
