Abstract

This report presents a case of aberrant gallbladder anatomy. A 75-year-old female presented to the hospital with choledocholithiasis was admitted and underwent an endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) to clear the common bile duct stones; no aberrant anatomy was noted at this time. The following day she was taken to the operating room for cholecystectomy prior to discharge. During the surgical procedure, the patient was found to have aberrant anatomy and an intraoperative cholangiogram was performed. This identified a dual cystic duct, a rare anomaly.
