A rare case of gallstone ileus-the unanswered question.

Gallstone ileus is caused by an impaction of one or more gallstones within the gastrointestinal tract leading to mechanical intestinal obstruction. It is a rare complication of cholelithiasis and found in 2-3% of all cases associated with recurrent episodes of cholecystitis. This case study demonstrates an atypical presentation of gallstone ileus. A 57-year-old woman was presented with abdominal pain and vomiting without previous history of gallstone disease. The features of gallstone ileus are evident on computed tomography. She underwent an emergency laparotomy and enterotomy for the removal of impacting gallstones, followed by an interval cholecystectomy and cholecystoduodenal fistula closure. This case report aims to explore the proper surgical management of gallstone ileus. Unfortunately, the question of whether interval biliary surgery should be performed remains unanswered, and surgeons will continue to make the decision based on their clinical judgement.
