Foreign bodies in the common bile duct (CBD) are either iatrogenic or accidental. Increasing number of biliary interventional procedures both surgical and endoscopic are responsible for iatrogenic foreign bodies in the CBD. Here we report an unusual case of 59 year old female who presented with upper abdominal pain, jaundice and altered LFT with significant past history of laproscopic cholecystectomy. Endoscopic ultrasound revealed a linear hyper-echoic lesion with acoustic shadowing in the distal CBD, suggestive of a stone with central hyperechoic nidus, which was later confirmed by ERCP and removed by Dormia basket. The stone was crushed and two surgical clips were isolated fron the stone.
