Gallstone ileus is an uncommon cause of small bowel obstruction and is rarely suspected preoperatively. Patients are usually elderly and present with features of small bowel obstruction. Commonest site of impaction of the gallstone is the terminal ileum. We report a case of gallstone ileus in a 37-year-old female who presented with vomiting and anuria, and without any symptoms of intestinal obstruction. Intraoperatively the gallstone was found impacted at the duodeno-jejunal flexure. Impaction of gallstone at the duodeno-jejunal flexure is yet to be reported in literature.
