Gallbladder agenesis: about three cases.

Abstract Gallbladder agenesis is a rare congenital anomaly. This study aimed to highlight the epidemiological aspects of this condition as well as the peculiarities of its diagnostic and therapeutic management through three case reports. Two adults were admitted to Hospital with hepatic colics and dyspepsia. Ultrasound showed multilithiasic scleroatrophic vesicle. In one of the two patients, CT scan results showed a stone at the level of scleroatrophic vesicle. These two patients were wrongly operated for vesicular lithiasis by using conventional method. The absence of gallbladder was detected during surgery. In order to confirm post-operative diagnosis, the first patient underwent biliary MRI. The other patient was lost to follow-up. The third patient was a 13-year old child hospitalized with acute pancreatitis. Vesicular agenesis was suspected based on its scannographic aspect and then confirmed using biliary MRI. This patient didn't underwent surgery.
