Mirizzi syndrome was first described by Pablo Luis Mirrizi. The incidence of this syndrome ranges from 0.05% to 4%. This
rare condition is caused by the obstruction of common hepatic duct or common bile duct due to compression caused by
several impacted stones or a single large impacted gallstone in Hartmann’s pouch. The clinical presentations may vary from
no symptoms to severe cholangitis. It is a rare cause of obstructive jaundice and hence we are reporting a case to emphasize
that while evaluating a case of obstructive jaundice, one must consider Mirizzi syndrome as a differential diagnosis.
