A gallstone impacting to stomach wall imitating a gastric tumour
Authors describe a case of 78 years old female who presented with the right upper abdominal pain. Ultrasonography showed a gallstone. The patient underwent laparascopic cholecystectomy. The laparoscopic procedure was converted to laparotomy because the adhesions between gallblader and stomach could not be dissected on the correct plane. A gallstone impacted to the stomach antrum wall was observed during dissection. When dense adhesions are noted between the gallbladder and stomach during a routine laparascopic cholecystectomy, one should consider an impacted gallstone on the gastric wall via a cholecystogastric connection.
