Abstract

Irritability and crying are common modes of presentations of diseases in infancy. We had a very rare encounter of an infant presenting with non-specific clinical features caused by cholidocholithiasis that underwent spontaneous resolution within couple of days of onset of symptoms. Systematic analysis of clinical features and judicial use of imaging would often help identification of rare pathologies in this age group such as cholidocholithiasis as seen in this baby.
