A rare case of acute cholecystitis and common bile duct obstruction due to Ormond’s disease – A case report and literature mini review


Idiopathic retroperitoneal fibrosis, also known under the name of Ormond’s disease usually compresses the retroperitoneal structures, especially the ureters. In rare cases other structures such as the biliary system can be involved. We report the case of a 49-year-old patient diagnosed with Ormond’s disease two years before, who developed jaundice and acute cholecystitis due to the progression of the retroperitoneal fibrosis.

Keywords: idiopathic retroperitoneal fibrosis, common bile duct obstruction, acute cholecystitis.
