Abstract: Isolated trauma to the gall bladder is a rare entity and diagnosis is often delayed or missed. Blunt abdominal trauma leading to gall bladder injury alone accounts only to less than 2% cases and requires high clinical suspicion.

We in this case report a case of isolated gall bladder injury following blunt abdominal trauma treates using percutaneous cholecystostomy.
