Biliary tract complications are one of the most common complications, after liver transplantation. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is a frequently performed diagnostic and therapeutic procedure for those complications. Stent dislocation after ERCP procedure is a very rare complication. There are only case reports, about the perforation complications due to stent migration in the literature. Therefore, there is not enough data about the incidence of this complication. Here, we present a case who had ERCP procedure due to biliary tract stricture after liver transplantation. The patient admitted with an abdominal pain and intra-abdominal free liquid was detected on computed tomography scan. The patient was urgently operated and primary repair of the duodenal perforation was performed.
