ABSTRACT
Recurrent cholangitis resulting from a surgical needle retained in the bile duct following opencholecystectomy is an extremely rare complication. Such a foreign body can cause biliary stasis and serve as a nidus for the nucleation of bile duct stones, resulting in recurrent cholangitis. We report a case of biliary stones and cholangitis caused by a surgical needle 20 years after open cholecystectomy that was successfully removed by percutaneous cholangioscopy without complications.
Keywords: Foreign body, Surgical needle, Stone, Cholangitis
