Gallbladder torsion is a rare condition causing acalculus cholecystitis. Its preoperative identification is difficult with current radiological means and it is generally diagnosed at surgery. A case of gallbladder torsion due to an extremely rare anomaly consisting of partial fixation of the fundus to a fore-shortened liver bed is reported. The etiology, diagnosis and treatment of this condition are discussed.
