WEI, L et al. The value of MRCP in children with biliary symptomatology - an essential adjunct for safe cholecystectomy. S. Afr. j. surg. [online]. 2022, vol.60, n.1, pp.67-69. ISSN 2078-5151.

Congenital abnormalities of the biliary system are a consideration in children with biliary symptomatology. The preoperative diagnosis rate is still not satisfactory, despite progresses made in imaging technology, with the potential of biliary tract injury if surgery is indicated. The double gallbladder is a rare developmental abnormality of the biliary tract with several anatomical variations. This abnormality was accurately delineated in a 7-year-old child by MRI/MRCP, allowing the ductal anatomy to be accurately identified and safe laparoscopic cholecystectomies to be performed.

Palabras clave : double gallbladder; child; laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
