BACKGROUND: Choledochoduodenal fistula is an uncommon complication secondary to peptic ulcer disease. Determining this diagnosis is challenging especially when confronted with unspecific physical and radiological findings.

CONCLUSIONS: Choledochoduodenal fistula is a rare complication of duodenal ulcer and this case report may help clinicians to identify suspected cases of this entity with similar presentations.
