Resumo


Case report of a 34-year-old healthy woman diagnosed with symptomatic choledocholithiasis associated with elevated results of transaminases without hepatic disease. High levels of these enzymes can occur in choledocholithiasis cases without further causes of liver injury. Clinicians must be aware of this phenomenon, avoiding unnecessary investigation and its consequences.
