Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography is a key procedure in the management of biliopancreatic diseases, as it can be both diagnostic and therapeutic element. This is a complex technique and has a steep learning curve, and its most frequent complications are pancreatitis, hemorrhage, cholangitis and perforation. Prevalence of complications ranks from 5.4 to 23% and global mortality from 0.1% to 1%, which can be increased if duodenal perforation is present (8-23%) due to sepsis and multi organic failure. We present the case of two patients who presented complications handled with conservative treatment.

Key words: cholangiopancreatography, cholangitis, perforation, hemorrhage.
