Abstract

A cholecystohepatic duct is a rare biliary anomaly that is identified by the drainage of the hepatic duct into the gallbladder. We herein report on the case of a 2-year-old boy diagnosed as this anomaly. Laparoscopic subtotal cholecystectomy was successfully performed, and this is the first report of a case with a cholecystohepatic duct treated using a laparoscopic subtotal cholecystectomy.
