Background: Although Mirizzi syndrome is widely reported in literature, little is known about acute acalcholous cholecystitis determinig the findings of a Mirizzi syndrome. Case presentation: We report a case of MRCP-confirmed Mirizzi syndrome in acute acalculous cholecystitis resolved by surgery. Conclusion: Acute acalcholosus cholecystitis determinig a Mirizzi Syndrome should be included in the Mirizzi classification as a type 1. Thus it could be useful to divide the type 1 in two entity (compression by stone and compression by enlarged gallbladder). Magnetic Resonance should be considered the preferred diagnostic tool in any case of Mirizzi syndrome suspicious. Keywords: Acute cholecystitis, Mirizzi, Acalcholus, Jaundice, Stone

Abstract

Background: Although Mirizzi syndrome is widely reported in literature, little is known about acute acalcholous cholecystitis determinig the findings of a Mirizzi syndrome. Case presentation: We report a case of MRCP-confirmed Mirizzi syndrome in acute acalculous cholecystitis resolved by surgery. Conclusion: Acute acalcholosus cholecystitis determinig a Mirizzi Syndrome should be included in the Mirizzi classification as a type 1. Thus it could be useful to divide the type 1 in two entity (compression by stone and compression by enlarged gallbladder). Magnetic Resonance should be considered the preferred diagnostic tool in any case of Mirizzi syndrome suspicious. Keywords: Acute cholecystitis, Mirizzi, Acalcholus, Jaundice, Stone
