Abstract

A rare case of obstructive Jaundice in a 35 yrs old male from Afghanistan is presented with

recurring attacks of upper abdominal pain and jaundice. Ultrasound examination revealed multiple

gallstones with dilated common bile duct. During exploration of common bile duct, five leaf like liver

flukes(Fasciola Hepatica) were recovered and identified. Patient was treated with Albendazole and had an

uneventful recovery. Biliary fascioliasis should be considered in the differential diagnosis of

obstructive jaundice.
