Abstract


Mirizzi Syndrome type IV is an extremely rare condition, which is confused with the diagnosis of cholangiocarcinoma in many cases. This report describes a case of a forty-three-year old patient, who was forwarded to our department of general surgery with a high suspicion of a choledochal neoplasic lesion. During the hospitalization he was diagnosed with Mirizzi Syndrome type IV. We concisely describe the case and the literature review about this pathology.
