Gall bladder duplication is an unusual structural anomaly. According to the studies, this happen about 1 in 4000 times. Evaluation of these malformations, in all their varieties, prior to the procedure is crucial in order to protect any biliary and vascular aberrant anatomy. We present a 10-year-old male child presented with recurrent epigastric and right upper quadrant abdominal pain associated with attack of fever, nausea, and vomiting. Abdominal ultrasound examination was performed, showing complete gallbladder duplication having two cystic ducts untied before passing into the common bile duct.
