Background/Aim: Mirizzi's syndrome (MS) is an unusual complication of gallstone disease and occurs in approximately 1% of patients with cholelithiasis. Majority of cases are not identified preoperatively, despite the availability of modern imaging techniques. A preoperative diagnosis can forewarn the operating surgeon and avoid bile duct injuries in cases of complicated cholecystitis. A preoperative scoring system helpful and hence, we aim to devise a scoring system based on clinical, biochemical, and imaging features to predict the diagnosis of MS in cases of complicated cholecystitis...
