Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) is a standard procedure for large renal calculi but has potential for complications. Rarely, biliary tract injury can occur during PCNL that can lead to biliary peritonitis with sepsis. Such cases are usually managed by emergent cholecystectomy. We present a case of biliary peritonitis resulting from gall bladder injury during PCNL, managed minimally invasively with an abdominal drain and endoscopic retrograde cholangiography with common bile duct stenting.
