PMID:  19954104     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Double cystic duct is an extremely rare anomaly of the biliary tract not described in the pediatric literature. We report the first pediatric case born with VACTERL association found to have double cystic ducts during gallbladder surgery for symptomatic cholelithiasis. Description of the anatomic variability, cholangiography images, and pathologic findings along with review of the literature is included.
