Özet

A double or bilobed gallbladder is a rare congenital anomaly. Because other congenital vascular and biliary duct anomalies may accompany this pathology, open cholecystectomy was thought to be the best treatment of symptomatic patients. In this paper, we report a patient with a bilobed gallbladder whose symptoms were successfully treated with laparoscopic cholecystectomy. We also discuss the characteristics and the embryology of this rare anomaly.
