We reported an ectopically located gallbladder, which appeared to be a choledochal cyst on hepatobiliary scintigraphy in a 10-year-old girl.

A process whereby bile is delivered from the gallbladder into the duodenum. The emptying is caused by both contraction of the gallbladder and relaxation of the sphincter mechanism at the choledochal terminus.
