Case 1

Slide 20

September 2011

Our first case is a 33-year-old male with multiple medical problems including recurrent urinary tract infections, polynephritis, and chronic anemia; he is status post small bowel resection for obstruction with resulting short bowel syndrome, and chronic abdominal pain. The patient presented with symptoms of biliary colic. A CT scan demonstrated gallstones with impacted stones in the distal common bile duct. An ERCP was performed and the stones extracted. Biliary brush cytology was sent for routine cytology and FISH studies.
