. Pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis of small bowel and cholecysto-duodenal fistula in stenosing peptic ulcer revealed by pneumoperitoneum

Pneumatosis of small bowel is a rare disease. Its association with a cholecysto-duodenal fistula is not often reported. This is the case of a 30-year-old man with a past medical history of duodenal ulcer, who presented in the emergency department for non-specific abdominal pain. Abdominal X-ray revealed a pneumoperitoneum. Computed tomography showed a pneumoperitoneum, presence of air in the biliary tract and gas in the small bowel wall. Gastro-intestinal opacification revealed a cholecysto-duodenal fistula in a stenosing duodenal ulcer associated with pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis. The patient went on to have a truncal vagotomy and gastrojejunal anastomosis. A cholecystectomy and a duodenal repair were also performed. Computed tomography and a gastrografin study are very important for the diagnosis of pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis with cholecysto-duodenal fistula in stenosing ulcer.
