PMID:  890264     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case is presented of multiseptate hypoplastic gallbladder, which is an extremely rare combination of two congenital anomalies. The patient was diagnosed as having cholecystitis and was relieved of her symptoms following cholecystectomy, even though the specimen did not show evidence of inflammation or calculi. The significance of this is emphasized by reviewing the 5 authenticated cases of multiseptate gallbladder reported in the literature. Awareness of this condition should avoid misinterpretation of cholecystograms.
