Obstructive jaundice is a common manifestation of malignancies involving pancreaticobiliary area of the gastrointestinal tract. The palliation of obstructive jaundice involves bypassing the obstruction by an endoprosthesis using either endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) or percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage route. Endoscopic ultrasound-guided choledochoduodenostomy (ECD) is a challenging alternative for obstructive jaundice due to distal bile duct obstruction in patients who have failed ERCP. In this report, we describe a challenging case of disseminated urinary bladder cancer that presented with extensive duodenal as well as periduodenal infiltration leading on to gastrointestinal bleed and severe pruritus along with obstructive jaundice and was successfully managed with initial argon plasma coagulation of bleeding duodenal lesions followed by ECD.
