Abstract

We present the case of an elderly Irish male with Bouveret's syndrome--a very unusual cause of gallstone ileus, where a large gallstone occludes the gastric outlet or duodenum causing obstruction. Management of this condition is often controversial. We discuss the various medical, radiological and surgical therapies available for treatment of this rare entity.
