GOMEZ, Martín Alonso; RUIZ, Óscar  e  ESTARITA, Javier. Lemmel’s Syndrome Documented with Endoscopic Ultrasound. Rev Col Gastroenterol [online]. 2019, vol.34, n.1, pp.69-72. ISSN 0120-9957.  http://dx.doi.org/10.22516/25007440.356.

Obstructive jaundice is a frequent for patients to come to emergency services. Lemmel’s syndrome is an obstructive biliary syndrome secondary to a papillary duodenal diverticulum for which other causes of obstructive jaundice have been ruled out. We describe a case of obstructive jaundice in an 84-year-old patient who underwent magnetic resonance imaging and biliopancreatic endosonography to rule out biliary lithiasis. Subsequently, the patient underwent ERCP where the papillary diverticulum was evident and without choledocholithiasis. A papillotomy was performed. Afterwards, the patient’s clinical evolution was favorable.

Palavras-chave : Jaundice; Lemmel’s syndrome; abdominal pain; ERCP.
