Cholecystocutaneous abscess: A rare presentation of a common problem
AbstractFistulating cholecystocutaneous abscess is a known rare complication of chronic gallstones disease. In these modern days, this complication is exceedingly rare due to early diagnosis with radiological imaging, use of broad spectrum antibiotics and early surgical management of biliary tract disease. Here we present a case of an 89-yearold with cholecystocutaneous abscess that was mistaken for simple subcutaneous abscess. The management include initial control of subcutaneous abscess and use of antibiotics followed by definitive surgical excision of gall bladder and the fistula tract.
