Diverticulum of the cystic duct
Diverticulum of the cystic duct The patient was admitted for recurrent biliary pain. All laboratory tests remained normal. Sonographically there were no stones in the gall bladder. ERCP was performed for the typical biliary pain and suspected papillary dysfunction. It shows the rare pathology of a diverticulum of the cystic duct. The painful episodes can be explained by an intermittent obstruction of bile flow by the diverticulum. After cholecystectomy the patient is free of symptomes.
