Bile duct injuries are well-known complications of laparoscopic and open cholecystectomies. Here, we report anastomosis of the common bile duct to the transverse colon that occurred as a complication of laparoscopic cholecystectomy. To the best of our knowledge, a similar case has not been reported in the literature so far. As in our patient, persistent diarrhea (in addition to fever and icterus) can be a warning sign of complication after these procedures. Surgeons who do advanced laparoscopic techniques must be familiar with this complication.
