Abstract

An unusual case of a patient with two biliary stones of different densities that responded differently to oral litholytic treatment with ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) is reported. The findings confirm, in an unusual experimental model, that CT is useful in the selection of those stones which have a high probability of dissolution under treatment with oral bile acids.
