Abstract

A rare case of torsion of the gallbladder fundus, which was diagnosed by ultrasound and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) and released during ERCP, is presented. The case illustrates the sonographic and ERCP findings of this rare condition and suggests using ERCP as a therapeutic tool.

Key words: Gallbladder—Torsion—Ultrasound—Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography.
