Gallstone ileus is a relatively uncommon complication of gallbladder stone. It accompanies the fistula from gall-bladder to small intestine, usually to duodenum with the mechanical obstruction of small bowel. The stone is most commonly located in the distal ileum. Its diagnosis can be made when the stone is detected in the obstructed bowellumen by ultrasound. Here we report one case of gallstone ileus diagnosed by ultrasound and confirmed surgically.
