[Spontaneous cholecystocutaneous fistula: natural history of biliary cholecystitis].

Spontaneous cholecystocutaneous fistula is a rare complication of gallbladder empyema without treatment. The incidence has further decreased with the advent of resuscitation and surgical treatment. These fistulas are like a cholecystostomy. The diagnostic is confirmed with a fistulogram which allows visualization of the fistula tract. Traditional treatment has consisted of broad-spectrum antibiotics administration, cholecystectomy and fistula drainage. One-stage treatment is the preferred option. Laparoscopic approach appears feasible even the conversion rate is high.
