Phrygian Cap - An Incidental Finding in Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy

Dr. Ramendranath Talukdar [3] | Dr. Megha Grover | Dr. Kartavya Patel | Dr. Amandeep Singh

Abstract: A Phrygian cap is a congenital anomaly of the gallbladder with an incidence of 4%. A Phrygian cap, however, has no pathological significance and normally causes no symptoms. A case will be presented where a Phrygian cap was found by coincidence during surgery. The patient was operated for symptomatic cholelithiasis. During perioperative inspection, a gallbladder with a folded fundus was seen. Radiographic imaging can be helpful in narrowing the differential diagnosis. To our knowledge, there is no recent literature about the Phrygian cap and its imaging aspects. Nowadays, multiphase MRI, or multiphase CT in case of MRI contraindication, is the first choices of hepatobiliary imaging.
