Gall stone ileus is a rare complication of gall stones. A rarer entity is Bouverets syndrome which causes gastric outlet obstruction due to migration of gall stones into duodenal bulb through cholecystoduodenal fistula. Bouverets syndrome constitutes 1–3% of the cases of gall stone ileus which in turn complicates only 0.3–4% cases of cholelithisasis. Bouverets syndrome is managed surgically. The present case is of a 66-year-old man who presented with gastric outlet obstruction and was diagnosed with Bouveret’s syndrome later. Bouverets syndrome is an uncommon condition whose awareness is essential as it may pose a difficulty in diagnosis.
