50-year-old female underwent routine uneventful laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Post-operative period was complicated by biliary leak. Magnetic resonance cholangiography delineated the site of injury as duct of luschka (sub-vesical duct) originating from the right hepatic duct. ERCP with stenting remains the mainstay of treatment allowing for preferential drainage and healing. Staying very close to the gallbladder during removal is the only known preventive measure.
