Download Abstract:

Mirizzi syndrome is a rarely observed phenomenon that results from extrinsic compression of common hepatic duct due to gallbladder or cystic duct calculi presenting with obstructive jaundice and cholangitis. Mirizzi syndrome is difficult to differentiate from other serious conditions such as cholangiocarcinoma, biliary strictures and choledocholithiasis clinically and on imaging. Making a pre-operative diagnosis using imaging modalities is a challenge. MRCP is a non invasive accurate modality for diagnosis of Mirizzi syndrome.
