Abstract

Ectopic localization of the gallbladder is a rare condition with an incidence of 0.1% to 0.7%. A 71-year-old male patient is admitted to the emergency room with abdominal pain. Patient with high bilirubin and cholestasis enzymes biochemical parameters were performed abdominal USG and CT. In preoperative abdominal CT, gallbladder was found ectopically located posteriorly of the right colon. ERCP was performed because of persistence of bilirubin levels, extrahepatic and hilus level intrahepatic bile duct dilation. Patient underwent open cholecystectomy with normal cholestasis enzymes and bilirubin levels.
