Ectopic liver is a rare entity that has been previously identified during abdominal exploration for other surgery and this has usually been described in the vicinity of the liver such as on the gallbladder, hepatic ligaments, diaphragm, thoracic cavity, adrenal glands, pancreas, omentum, spleen, esophagus and umbilical cord. Most cases of ectopic liver reported in the literature were located in the gallbladder. We report here on a case of ectopic liver related to the gallbladder, and this was encountered during an elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
