Abstract

Bone metaplasia is a rare phenomenon in the gastrointestinal tract. We present a case of a 58-year-old man who underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy for symptoms of chronic cholecystitis. Histologic examination of the removed gallbladder revealed intramural bone metaplasia in association with chronic cholecystitis. To the best of our knowledge, such a case has not yet been reported. The clinical significance of this finding remains to be elucidated.
