Abstract: A case of recurrent abdominal (biliary tract) symptoms, mimicking gallbladder disease after previous cholecystectomy is presented. The symptoms were attributable to a long residual cystic duct stump with low insertion which was missed at previous surgery. The residual stump had undergone dilatation mimicking a gallbladder. Awareness of anomalies and variations of the extra hepatic biliary tree is necessary to avoid such unforeseen complications.
