Abdominal tuberculosis is common in developing countries, but gall bladder involvement is extremely rare. The diagnosis of gall bladder tuberculosis is often not suspected prior to surgery or a biopsy. This paper presents a case of gall bladder tuberculosis in a 40-year-old female, who presented with clinical features of chronic cholecystitis. Abdominal ultrasound showed a dilated gall bladder with multiple gall stones located in the fundus, with no other appreciable features. The patient had a retrograde open cholecystectomy and treated with antitubercular drugs. The literature on this topic is reviewed.
