We experienced ileal perforation caused by dislocated biliary endoprosthesis in 59 years old female patient. The endoprosthesis was implanted due to biliary fistula after laparoscopic cholecystectomy 2 years before the perforation. It seems that endoprosthesis dislocation and the perforation were the result of too long stay of endoprosthesis. After the surgical management and the removal of the prosthesis patient was cured. Although ileal perforation caused by dislocated biliary endoprosthesis is rare, clinicians should be aware of the possibility of its occurrence.

Key words: biliary track surgical procedures, intestinal perforation, biliary endoprosthesis
