Gallbladder Torsion: A Rare Cause of Acute Abdomen
Gallbladder torsion is one of the important causes of acute abdomen. Early diagnosis and treatment is important because surgical intervention is required. Abdominal ultrasonography (US) and contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) are useful diagnostic tools prior to surgery. Here, we present the case of an elderly woman who underwent emergency cholecystectomy due to gallbladder torsion.
