Abstract


Isolated gall bladder tuberculosis is a highly rare disease entity. It may be associated with other intra-abdomen tuberculosis, which may involve the gallbladder via the lymphatics or bloodstream pathway. We intend to present a case of gall bladder tuberculosis diagnosed histopathologically in a 50 year old female patient, suspected to be gallbladder carcinoma after computed tomography scan and frozen section biopsy. So all operated cholecystectomy specimens should always be send for histopathology confirmation of the diagnosis and all patients of gall bladder tuberculosis should be assessed for any tubercular focus elsewhere in the body.
