Gallbladder duplication is a rare congenital anomaly, which is not accompanied by specific symptoms; however, it is usually associated with cholelithiasis. A 52-year-old man is described, who was referred to the hospital complaining of pain. Ultrasonography indicated the presence of Boyden’s Type II gallbladder duplication with stones in the left gallbladder and cholecystitis in both gallbladders. The patient underwent cholecystectomy. In the pathology report, chronic inflammation of the gallbladder was reported. Furthermore, the presence of a second gallbladder was confirmed.
