Case Report

Shrapnel Splinter in the Common Bile Duct

Abstract

Obstructive jaundice is infrequently caused by a foreign body. We report a 42-year-old man who presented with obstructive jaundice by an impacted shrapnel splinter in the common bile duct (CBD) 23 years after a combat injury. To our knowledge, this is the first case report of this type in Iranian literature, although there are a few reports of combat related injuries in other countries. This diagnosis should be considered in the assessment of any patient with jaundice and abdominal pain who has experienced a previous combat injury.
