Acute hydrops of the gallbladder is described in a patient who had mucocutaneous lymph node syndrome. Diagnosis was readily made with gray-scale ultrasound. Serial sonograms were obtained to follow the resolution of the hydrops once supportive medical therapy was started. The role of surgery in acute hydrops of the gallbladder is for complications of the hydrops and not for distension alone.
