The association between hyperplastic polyp of the gallbladder with pancreaticobiliary maljunction (PBM) is extremely rare. This report describes the rare case of a 9-year-old girl with PBM complicated by hyperplastic polyp of the gallbladder, and the successful surgical treatment of PBM. We review the literature on this type of relationship between hyperplastic polyp of the gallbladder and PBM, and discuss the clinical features of this complication. Furthermore, the possible cause of the onset of hyperplastic polyp of the gallbladder complicated by PBM was explored in this report.
