Case contributed by Dr Roberto Schubert


Sudden-onset upper right quadrant and mid-abdominal pain for 3 days.

Patient Data

Age: 70
Gender: Male

Dilated intra- and extrahepatic bile ducts (D. choledochus 15 mm). 17 mm obstructive, mixed  gallstone near the papilla. Probably more mixed or cholesterol stones in the gallbladder. Myelolipoma of the left adrenal. Several renal cysts (atypically hyperdense one at the left lower pole).

Case Discussion

Stones with only minor or without calcifications are difficult to see on CT. The common bile duct stone in this case is typical for the mixed type of gallstones.
