A 78-year-old woman admitted in the emergency department due to epigastric pain and vomiting in the last week. As personal history, she underwent gallstone ileus surgery without cholecystectomy. Plain radiograph (Fig. 1) shows a large gastric dilatation with pneumobilia and gallstone in the right hypochondrium. CT (Fig. 2) confirmed the duodenal ectopic gallstone location as mechanical obstruction.
