Abstract: A 60-year-old male was operated upon in 2002 for liver hydatidosis, which included partial right hepatectomy with cholecystectomy and bilioduodenal anastomosis. He then developed liver cirrhosis secondary to left hepatic duct stricture. He presents at the emergency room with dry cough, which he had for a month and then became associated with yellowish, bitter-tasting "fluid" expectoration. A chest-abdominal CT scan revealed a 6 x 5-cm collection roughly located somewhere between the middle pulmonary lobe and subphrenic area . A fistula was suspected, which prompted a sputum biochemistry test that was positive for bilirubin. Given the patient's impaired liver function because of his liver disease conservative treatment was initiated with an inner-outer drain under transparietal hepatic cholangiography (TPHC) to promote bile outflow via the duodenum. Subsequently, TPHC was used to locate the point where contrast leaked from the biliary tree into a pleural cavity, and the fistula was sealed using cyanoacrylate glue, which resulted in improved symptomatology.
