Abstract

Common bile duct stones are an unusual occurrence in children. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreaticography and endoscopic papillary sphincterotomy are excellent tool for diagnosis and therapy. Bleeding after endoscopic papillary sphincterotomy occurs in approximately 0.5∼12% of procedures. We experienced a case of common bile duct stone in 5-year-old boy. After endoscopic papillary sphincterotomy, the stone was passed. 5 days after the procedure bleeding occurred, but it was controlled spontaneously.
