Left sided gallbladders without situs inversus viscerum are a very rare occurrence with few cases reported in the literature. These gallbladders are situated between Segments III and IV or on Segment III to the left of the falciform ligament. Routine preoperative studies usually do not detect this anomaly and there is no difference in clinical presentation from normal situated gall bladders. Awareness of the unpredictable confluence of the cystic duct into the common bile duct and selective use of intraoperative cholangiography aid in the safe management of this unusual problem.
Key words: Left sided gallbladder, situs inversus, medioposition, sinistroposition
