Cholestasis and obstructive jaundice can be extrahepatic or intrahepatic. Here we present one case with calculous cholecystitis who presenting with repeated obstructive jaundice and without bile duct dilation. The patient received laparoscopic cholecystectomy, and cystohepatic duct was identified intraoperatively, there was no cholestasis or obstructive jaundice postoperatively. Cystohepatic duct is a rare biliary anomaly observed in 0.7% of all surgical cases and in 1.5% of all cadaveric dissections. The cystohepatic duct can be the bridge of calculous cholecystitis complicating cholangitis and obstructive jaundice, here we for the first time presented this entity.
