abstract

  • There is high association of gallbladder cancer in Mirizzi syndrome. Elevated CA 19-9 levels in this syndrome are indicative of a coincidental gallbladder malignancy. Because of this high coincidence of Mirizzi syndrome and gallbladder cancer we recommend an intraoperative frozen section of the gallbladder in all patients presenting with Mirizzi syndrome.
