Abstract


AIMS: To describe the diagnosis and treatment of a case of Sump Syndrome.
CASE DESCRIPTION: A 33 years old woman presented recurrent episodes of abdominal pain accompanied by fever and chills. The patient had previously undergone surgery of the biliary tract, and the current diagnosis of Sump Syndrome was performed. A surgical treatment was indicated given the impossibility of endoscopic treatment in this case.
CONCLUSIONS: The Sump Syndrome, rare nowadays, consists of a complication of choledocoduodenoanastomosis caused by contact of gastric residues with the distal common bile duct, causing obstruction. It should be considered as a cause of recurrent cholangitis.
