A 51-year-old man underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy for gallbladder stones. He had developed fever, chills, and abdominal pain four days after the procedure. In the drain tube, bile was persistently observed. An endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) showed a leakage from the small duct into the right intrahepatic duct. We determined that the bile leak was caused by an injury to the ducts of Luschka. An endoscopic sphincterotomy (ES) using a 5-F nasobiliary tube (NBT) was performed, and the leak was resolved in five days. Herein, we report a bile leak caused by an injury to the ducts of Luschka after laparoscopic cholecystectomy. The leak was treated with ES using 5-F NBT, and the resolution of the leak was confirmed without repeated endoscopy.
