Abstract

The anatomy of the biliary tree is complex, and its variations of both intra- and extra-hepatic bile ducts can be found in approximately 30% of the general population. These variations are not picked up on routine pre-operative investigations of patients planned for a laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) and often present as an unusual 'surprise' and a challenge that can make dissection in the Calot's triangle difficult leading to iatrogenic injury. We present a case of a 53-year-old female with an undescribed anomaly encountered during an LC. There was a high insertion of the cystic duct into the fundus of the gallbladder. No such anomaly has been described in literature till date.
