In just over 20 years, laparoscopic cholecystectomy has emerged as the standard therapy for cholelithiasis and is now being performed with increased safety. However an uncommon complication of this technique has been jaundice even in patients without iatrogenic bile duct injury. We report on two cases where this complication occurred and review the literature on this topic.
