Cholecystocolic fistula is an unusual complication of biliary tract disease and it may defeat laparoscopic treatment. We recently saw a patient who, while undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy, was found to hawe a fistula between the gallbladder and the transverse colon. The fistula was transected with a 3 cm endoscopic linear stapling device and uneventful laparoscopic cholecystectomy was performed. This report shows that, with increasing experience, no absolute contraindications exist to starting laparoscopic cholecystectomy by introducing the laparoscope.
