Abstract

We report a case a 70-year-old female presenting with abdominal pain who has a cystic duct coursing medial to the common bile duct before anastomosing just proximal to the ampulla. Low medial insertion of the cystic duct is a rare anatomic variant that is easily misidentified on imaging studies and may complicate surgical and percutaneous intervention. It can be identified by pre-operative imaging modalities such as magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography.
