Role of cholescintigraphy with single-photon emission computerized tomography-computed tomography in detecting bronchobiliary fistula: Unusual complication of a common disease
Bronchobiliary fistula (BFF) is an abnormal communication between the biliary tree and airway. A patient usually presents with cough and bilioptysis, and at times, it poses diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. This case demonstrates the usefulness of cholescintigraphy with single-photon emission computerized tomography in diagnosing BFF in case of hydatid cyst of the liver.
