Extrabiliary tract obstruction due to the fungus bezoar is extremely rare. A case of candida bezoar in the common bile duct causing obstructive jaundice and candidia cholecystitis in a patient with shotgun blast injury is presented here to draw attention to this rare complication. The patient was managed successfully with cholecystectomy, extraction of candidal bezoar through supraduodenal choledochotomy, T-tube drainage of the common bile duct and fluconazole as antifungal agent. In critically ill patients with prolonged broad-spectrum antibiotic therapy candida bezoar should be considered as a possible cause of obstructive jaundice.
