- 48 Downloads
Cases of spontaneous cholecystocutaneous fistula continue to attend surgical outpatient department in-spite of tremendous improvement in early diagnosis and treatment of gallbladder disease. It occurs as a complication of acute suppurative cholecystitis or neglected chronic cholecystitis due to cholelithiasis. We report two cases of spontaneous cholecystocutaneous fistula due to chronic cholecystitis with review of literature.
