Abstract

We report a rare case of duplication anomaly of gallbladder in a female aged 17 years, who presented with right hypochondrial pain for 3 months. Ultrasound findings suggested multiple stones in gallbladder and per-operatively she was found to have bilobed gallbladder. This case emphasizes the need for complete removal of both gallbladders during initial surgery, as a failure of this may result in recurrence of symptoms and stones and a need for re-exploration.
