Abstract

A bronehobiliary fistula is a rare entity that manifests as bilioptysis. We report a 73-year-old woman with a hepatocellular carcinoma who developed a bronchobiliary fistula. Endoscopic biliary sphincterotomy and insertion of a prosthesis led to successful resolution of symptoms and restoration of normal bile flow. We review the pertinent literature and the basis for management.
