This case report describes the rare presentation of an unknown dumbbell shaped (or hourglass with diaphragmatic membrane) gallbladder presenting as gallstone pancreatitis 5 months after laparoscopic cholecystectomy for cholelithiasis and our management strategy. This case highlights the importance of ensuring adequate exposure at the time of operation to prevent such presentations.
