Bouveret syndrome is a rare complication of cholelithiasis; its usual clinical presentation is a gastric outlet obstruction. The absence of guidelines for the management of this condition, mainly because there are only few cases in the literature and the high clinical suspicion for its diagnosis, encourage us to elaborate this paper in which we review the diagnosis and treatment options of patients with this condition, presenting a report of one case in which we describe some of the endoscopic and surgical therapies used.
