Abstract

We report a case of rare carcinoid tumor of the gallbladder. A 79-year-old woman was admitted to the hospital because of upper abdominal pain. A man's fist sized hard tumor without accompaning tenderness was palpable at the right hypochondrial region, and abdominal ultrasonography and computed tomography revealed a tumor in the gallbladder, about 9cm in diameter, which had clear border and diffuse intratumor density. With a diagnosis of gallbladder tumor with low suspicious of cancer, a cholecystectomy was performed. The resected tumor was 91×81mm in size, and no invasion into the surrounding tissue nor metastasis to the liver and regional lymph nodes was recognized. Pathologically it was carcinoid tumor of the gallbladder and the tumor involvement remained in the submucosal layer. She had been well without any recurrence for 20 months after the surgery.
