A 68-year-old woman presented with yellowish discharge oozing from a fistula opening in the upper epigastric area that had persisted for one month prior to her visit. The patient had undergone a left lateral segmentectomy of the liver ten years prior for treatment of intrahepatic duct (IHD) stones. An abdominal computed tomography (CT) scan showed focal stricture and proximal dilatation of remnant IHD and a 1 cm-sized rim-enhancing lesion located under the surgical bed of the abdominal wall…

Spontaneous external biliary fistula arising from an intrahepatic duct
TLDR
An 87-year-old man presented with swelling of the epigastric region and right upper quadrant abdomen and had a history of cholecystectomy and endoscopic sphincterotomy, and the underlying pathology was considered to be associated with a subcapsular hepatic cyst in segment III.

TLDR
A rare case of intrahepatic-cutaneous biliary fistula resulted from obstruction of the biliary tree by cholangiocarcinoma in the hilar area and was confirmed by sonogram, computed tomogram, and surgery.

Spontaneous Cholecystocutaneous Fistula: A Complication of Neglected Biliary Tract Disease
TLDR
Spontaneous cholecystocutaneous fistula is rarely seen today because of the relative safety of early treatment of biliary tract disease, but the problem is more common among patients of the geriatric age group.
