Abstract

Ultrasound of the abdomen has described intralumninal gallbladder masses or stones without acoustic shadowing which have been termed 'sludge balls'. This finding has not been previously reported via its x-ray appearance at endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography. This case reports this finding at endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography and emphasizes that it is in the spectrum between suprasaturated bile and choledocholithiasis.
