Abstract: Biloma after a laparoscopic cholecystectomy is a result of injury to the biliary tree. Most commonly the injury is due to an inadequately secured cystic duct stump, an accessory bile duct which seen in 2% of patients or duct of Luschka. In this case we describe biloma at the lesser sac after laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
