Cholecystocolonic fistula as an uncommon cause of diarrhea: a case-report and review of the literature

The cholecystocolonic fistula is the 2nd most usual bilio-enteric fistula, after the cholocystoduodenal fistula. A CCF might result from malignancy or more benign etiologies, such as gallstones, and is believed to develop from a chronic inflammatory tempo of cells death, tissue opening, and fistula production. The combination of chronic watery diarrhea, vitamin K malabsorption, and radiological proof of pneumobilia in a person with background of gallstone illness has been suggested as a pathognomonic triad of CCF.
