GARCIA A, Nicolás  e  PRADO A, Elizabeth. Gallbladder Duplication. Rev. chil. radiol. [online]. 2017, vol.23, n.1, pp.41-44. ISSN 0717-9308.

Gallbladder duplication is a rare congenital anomaly and, like other biliary malformations, is associated with an increased risk of complications in the laparoscopic cholecystectomy We present a case of a woman consulting in the emergency department for clinical symptoms compatible with acute cholecystitis. An abdominal ultrasound is performed confirming the clinical suspicions, observing the typical findings. Pathological dilatation of the extrahepatic biliary tract is also confirmed, therefore she is evaluated with MR cholangiography, which also confirms signs compatible with acute cholecystitis; the presence of a cystic formation of saccular morphology in an intrahepatic location was identified, with the same structure as the gallbladder, but smaller in size and with a duct of its own that drained into the common hepatic duct independently to the cystic duct of the inflamed vesicle.
