A double or bilobar gallbladder is a rare congenital anomaly. If not recognized during preoperative evaluation or operation, it can cause severe complications. We describe two cases in which a second operation had to be performed because of the presence of a second or bilobar gallbladder that was not recognized in the preoperative evaluation and during (laparoscopic) cholecystectomy. The types of anomalies, the concomitant pathology, and treatment are discussed. 

Laparoscopic treatment of a bilobed gallbladder: a case report and review of the literature.

TLDR
A patient with a bilobed gallbladder whose symptoms were successfully treated with laparoscopic cholecystectomy is reported.

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy for triple gallbladder

TLDR
A very rare case involving true triplication of the gallbladder in a 38-year-old man with no other congenital abnormalities is reported, which can be accomplished readily by laparoscopic surgery.

A variant of the double gallbladder. A possible cause of cholelithiasis?

TLDR
A case of a double gallbladder in a 45-year-old woman, which was discovered during laparoscopic cholecystectomy for symptomatic cholelithiasis, showed that it consisted of 2 chambers with separate cystic ducts, which communicated through an ostium.

Duplication of the Gallbladder. A Case Report

TLDR
A case of a symptomatic duplicated gallbladder, successfully treated by laparoscopic cholecystectomy is reported, which is important to know for surgeons because of associated anatomical variations of main bile duct and hepatic artery and increased risk of common bileduct injury.

Duplication of gallbladder — Rare entity treated laparoscopically

TLDR
It is important that surgeons be aware of this rare anomaly because of the associated anatomical variations of main bile duct, hepatic artery and increased risk of common bileduct injury.

Duplicate gallbladder: an unusual case report

TLDR
A case of duplicated gallbladder diagnosed serendipitously in a 63-year-old male patient who had previously undergone successful laparoscopic cholecystectomy approximately a year before for gallstones is presented.

Imaging in Double Gall Bladder with Acute Cholecystitis—A Rare Entity

TLDR
A case of duplicated gall bladder presenting as acute cholecystitis is reported, which is a rare congenital anomaly of the hepatobiliary system.

Duplication of the Gallbladder: A Case Report

TLDR
A case of an asymptomatic duplicated gallbladder with sludge ball is reported, which is important to know for surgeons because of associated anatomical variations of main bile duct and hepatic artery and increased risk of common biliary disease.

Congenital gallbladder duplication: Preoperative diagnosis by ultrasonography

TLDR
A case in which the diagnosis was achieved by real-time ultrasonography is presented and correlated with hepatobiliary scintigraphy, and the efficacy of these diagnostic modalities is discussed.

Scintigraphic demonstration of a gallbladder anomaly.

TLDR
A case of double gallbladder in which intravenous cholecystokinin analog (CCK) was used to confirm the presence of two ectopic gallbladders rather than other biliary tract anomalies or dilated hepatic ducts is reported.

TLDR
The results of ultrasound and Tc-99m DISIDA studies in one case of gallbladder duplication are presented and an awareness ofgallbladder anomalies may improve the accuracy of hepatobiliary imaging by eliminating some false-negative results.

Sonography of gallbladder duplication and differential considerations.

TLDR
Gallstones were present in all cases and were confined to only one of the two lobes identified in each case, which is probably the best indirect sign of a double gallbladder.

TLDR
A 50-year-old white woman, a farmer's wife, was registered at the Mayo Clinic on May 13, 1948, complaining of intolerance to fatty foods and episodes of distress at the right costal margin, relieved by vomiting, and cholecystographic examination showed a normally functioning gallbladder.

TLDR
Although the number of bile duct injuries is high, the findings of this general survey are similar to those from highly specialized centres and match the overall results of conventional cholecystectomy.
