RODRIGUEZ F, Roberto; POLANIA L, Héctor  and  EVERS S, Gabriela. A Case of Lemmel’s Syndrome: A Rare Cause of Non-Neoplastic Obstruction of the Biliary Tract. Rev Col Gastroenterol [online]. 2017, vol.32, n.1, pp.60-64. ISSN 0120-9957.

We report the case of a 77-year-old woman with jaundice but no evidence of choledocholithiasis or other alterations of the biliary tree except for a duodenal diverticulum. Lemmel’s syndrome was diagnosed and an endoscopic sphincterotomy with stenting was performed. Lemmel’s syndrome is a rare disease that must be considered as a cause of obstructive jaundice

Keywords : Lemmel syndromes; duodenal diverticulum; obstructive jaundice.
