QUIROZ LEYVA, Juan José; MORALES RODRIGUEZ, Cesar Augusto  and  VILLENA MOSQUEIRA, Ovidio. Lemmel’s syndrome: report of a case. Rev. gastroenterol. Perú [online]. 2019, vol.39, n.1, pp.81-83. ISSN 1022-5129.

Lemmel’s syndrome is a very rare condition as a cause of obstructive jaundice secondary to the presence of a duodenal diverticulum. We report a case, a 68-year-old female patient with a cholestatic pattern, biliary tract dilatation, who underwent ERCP, with a juxtapapillary diverticulum compressing the distal bile duct, which was sphincterotomy.

Keywords : Jaundice; obstructive; Duodenal obstruction; Sphincterotomy.
