Abstract

An 8-year-old child presented with obstruction of the common hepatic duct from a 9-mm bullet that had entered her liver 22 months earlier. Evaluation revealed migration of the bullet with complete obstruction of the common hepatic duct. Surgical removal and reconstruction with hepaticojejunostomy has provided long-term drainage.
