We report the case of a 69-year-old man with a spontaneous gastrobiliary fistula. Internal biliary fistulas are usually the result of longstanding, untreated choledocholithiasis, cholecystolithiasis, peptic ulcers or rarely neoplasia. This patient’s unspecific clinical picture led to a late diagnosis, which was made during surgery.
