Although migration of biliary stents is not uncommon, stent-induced perforation of the intestinal wall is a rare and serious complication. We report a case of duodenal perforation secondary to migrated biliary stent kept for obstructive jaundice for common bile duct stone in a 64-year-old male. Intestinal perforation secondary to migrated stent should be considered in patients reported with abdominal pain and sepsis after an endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography with biliary stent placement.
