Gallbladder volvulus:  a case report.

J Med Case Rep 2021 Oct 9;15(1):494. Epub 2021 Oct 9.

Department of General Surgery, Trinity Health System, Trinity West, Steubenville, OH, USA.

Background: Gallbladder volvulus is a rare pathology first reported by Wendel in 1898. Although the main pathological process associated with gallbladder volvulus is not known, there is clinical evidence suggesting that lack of gallbladder adhesions to the liver leads to an eventual twisting around the cystic bile duct (a process that seems to favor older female populations).

Case Presentation: In this report, an 81-year-old Caucasian elderly female presented to the emergency department with acute/severe right upper quadrant pain, which was also accompanied by an elevated leukocyte count. Read More
