PERRONE, Gonzalo; SALVATIERRA, Martín  and  BRAGA, Luciana. Bouveret syndrome: An unusual cause of gallstone ileus. Cir. parag. [online]. 2021, vol.45, n.2, pp.41-42. ISSN 2307-0420.

Bouveret's syndrome is an infrequent cause of upper digestive obstruction. It is produced by a cholecystoenteric fistula and passage of a stone to the digestive tract. Its preoperative diagnosis is difficult. Endoscopic treatment is of choice. Surgery is indicated in cases where this is not successful. We present the case of a 67-year-old patient with Bouveret syndrome surgically resolved after a failed endoscopic attempt.

Keywords : Bouveret syndrome; Gallstone ileus; Endoscopy Surgery.
