Abstract

Perforations are rare after endoscopic retrograde cholangiography (ERCP) but they are serious complications. Perforations may occur due to patient-related factors or procedural technique. The mortality rate is higher than 37.5%. We are presenting a patient with perforation detected on a computed tomography (CT) scan after ERCP for obstructive jaundice that was treated conservatively. Perforation after ERCP can be operated or treated conservatively according to the patient's condition.
