A case of transection of the common bile duct with avulsion of the gall-bladder from its hepatic bed due to blunt trauma is presented. The patient was diagnosed incidentally intra-operatively and managed with cholecystectomy and choledocho-duodenostomy. On the 10(th) postoperative day the patient developed bilioma in the subhepatic region, which was drained percutaneously. A few days later the patient was discharged from the hospital in good health.
