Bilioenteric fistulas are a rare pathology that has a variable clinical presentation that appears as a complication of gallstone disease. A case of a 58-year-old female patient is reported who presents with abdominal pain located at the level of the right upper quadrant of high intensity and long evolution. Using imaging techniques, the diagnosis of cholecystitis and cholelithiasis is reached. However, during the intraoperative period, a cholecystogastric fistula is diagnosed accompanied by sepsis of biliary origin, so the patient is admitted to the intensive care service with general surgery follow-up. Later, she was sent to the Eugenio Espejo Specialties Hospital Quito-Ecuador for definitive resolution of her pathology.
