J Pak Med Assoc. 2023 Mar;73(3):690-692. doi: 10.47391/JPMA.6187.


Incomplete duplication of gall bladder or vesica fellea divisa is one of the rare anomalies of gallbladder. Until now, 25 cases have been reported; of which four were proceeded with laparoscopic cholecystectomy. In our case, we diagnosed this nadir anomaly laparoscopically, posing a technical challenge since no radiological clue was observed beforehand. Successful laparoscopic resection of duplicated gall bladders was performed followed by Magnetic Resonance CholangioPancreaticography.
