TORSION OF THE GALLBLADDER IN AN ADULT: A RARE CASE OF ACUTE CHOLECYSTITIS

Abstract

Torsion of the gallbladder is a rare condition that is generally due to an abnormal anatomical variation, i.e., the presence of a long mesocyst with loss of fixation of gall-bladder to the inferior margin of the liver. The clinical features closely mimic those of acute cholecystitis. In any case, the definitive diagnosis is made during surgery (1, 2). Keywords: Torsion gallbladder- Laparoscopy - Acute cholecystitis
