Gallstone ileus complicating terminal ileal Crohn's disease



Gallstone ileus complicating terminal ileal Crohn's disease



British Journal of Surgery 68(3): 201-202



Two cases are reported of gallstone ileus complicating terminal ileal Crohn's disease. Both patients had a prolonged history of Crohn's disease without the need for surgical intervention. They were admitted with small bowel obstruction which failed to resolve on conservative management as is usually the case. The features of these two cases that may lead to the development of this complication and the pointers in diagnosis are discussed.
