Abstract

We report a case of gallbladder perforation with contained pericholecystic abscess, diagnosed by MRCP. MRCP demonstrated direct communication between the gallbladder lumen and a pericholecystic abscess, with associated cholelithiasis. MRCP can be helpful in diagnosis of clinically silent gallbladder perforation in patients with right upper quadrant pain.
