Spontaneous disappearance of limy bile : a cause of acute pancreatitis ? Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • The spontaneous disappearance of limy bile from the gallbladder causing transient obstructive jaundice and acute pancreatitis is extremely rare. Only five cases causing obstructive jaundice alone have so far been reported. We report a patient with obstructive jaundice and acute pancreatitis in whom the initial abdominal film showed limy bile in the gallbladder, which subsequently disappeared in the following abdominal films.
