We were delighted to come across the article titled “Gallbladder duplication with choledochal cyst: A rare entity” authored by Rahul Deo Sharma et al. The authors present an interesting case of a 4-year-old boy diagnosed with Type II choledochal cyst accompanied by double gallbladder. The coexistence of these anomalies is undeniably a rare occurrence, and we recognize the significance of early preoperative diagnosis in preventing potential complications.
We concur with the authors on all the aspects discussed in the article; however, we would like to highlight that we have also encountered a similar case in the pediatric age group. Our experience involved a 6-year-old boy presenting with a double gallbladder alongside type I choledochal cyst [Figure 1]. Our patient was managed by excision of the choledochal cyst with gallbladders, followed by a Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy.
