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.

Mentions: Furthermore, in 1969 Gross [3] in his report on congenital anomalies of the gallbladder reviewed 28 cases of double gallbladder and made a classification by A-F type (Figure 8). He has presented a case connected to the left hepatic duct as Type E. Thereafter, Gorecki et al. [5] reported a case of double gallbladder in a 69-year-old female with stones in both gallbladders with the accessory gallbladder originating from left hepatic duct, but the cystic duct could not be visualized. In 2009, Kim et al. [6] have reported duplicate gallbladder with stones arising from the left hepatic duct in a 78-year-old male 10 years after an open cholecystectomy. An apparent spiral structure of the cystic duct could not be identified in this case.
