Gallbladder tuberculosis (GBTB) is an exceedingly rare finding presenting as calculous or acalculous cholecystitis. A correct, preoperative diagnosis of GBTB is difficult, and the literature review highlights the fact that most cases are diagnosed postcholecystectomy or at postmortem. We present a case of a 26-year-old woman who underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy with preoperative diagnosis of cholelithiasis. GBTB was diagnosed by the histological examination. Routine histopathological examination of all cholecystectomy specimens should, therefore, be a standard practice.
