Bottom Line: Double gallbladder is a rare congenital biliary anomaly, but an accessory gallbladder arising from the left hepatic duct is a more remarkably rare congenital anomaly.We report a case of double gallbladder with adenocarcinoma and gallstones, which was preoperatively diagnosed by endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) and then confirmed by open laparotomy.A review of the literature is presented.

Double gallbladder is a rare congenital biliary anomaly, but an accessory gallbladder arising from the left hepatic duct is a more remarkably rare congenital anomaly. We report a case of double gallbladder with adenocarcinoma and gallstones, which was preoperatively diagnosed by endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) and then confirmed by open laparotomy.

By PET-CT abnormal accumulation of F18-FDP at location considered to be accessory gallbladder could be visualized.

Mentions: By cholangiography through the endoscopic nazobiliary drainage (ENBD) tube, cystic duct and accessory gallbladder arising from left hepatic duct could be visualized (Figures 3(c) and 3(d)). By positron emission computed tomography (PET-CT) a cystic structure resembling a gallbladder between the left lobe and right lobe of the liver could be visualized together with accumulation of F18-fluroradeoxyglucose (F18-FDP) (Figure 4). The cause of epigastralgia could not be determined by gastroendoscopy and colonoscopy.
