The ectopic liver tissue has been reported to develope in several sites as thoracic cavity, gastrohepatic ligament, adrenal glands, pancreas, esophagus and, above all, gallbladder. The Authors review the literature and report their experience as a contribution to the knowledge of this rare pathological entity.
