Aim: To assess diagnostic features, treatment strategies and postoperative complications in Mirizzi syndrome. Study Design: A prospective observational study. Place and duration: In the Surgical Unit I of Nishter Hospital Multan for one year duration from February 2019 to February 2020. Patients and methods: We present our experience with 12 cases of Mirizzi syndrome. All were diagnosed by examination and underwent surgical treatment. Results: Morbidity rate after surgery was 58.35% with the one mortality observed in this study. Conclusion: Mirizzi syndrome is rarely diagnosed preoperatively, and ultrasound does not give any indication even with experienced hands. In long-term cholelithiasis, the rate of clinical suspicion should be high. The operation provides final surgical treatment and diagnosis.
