Ectopic gallbladders are extremely rare with an incidence of 0.1%–0.7% and are found in a wide range of locations; the more common is beneath the left lobe of the liver and left of the round ligament, transversely positioned, intrahepatic or retroplaced, ie, directly behind the liver or in the retroperitoneal space. In this case, we present ectopic location of gallbladder beneath segment IVb near falciform ligament. Normally, the gallbladder fossa is found beneath the junction of hepatic segments IVB and V.
