Abstract

Percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography was performed on an 18-year-old man who presented with jaundice and cholangitis 19 months after right hepatic lobe resection. The cholangiogram demonstrated a bronchobiliary fistula and a stricture of the common hepatic duct. Percutaneous therapy consisting of biliary drainage and balloon dilation cholangioplasty was successful in eradicating the fistula and reestablishing normal bile flow.
