Female patient aged 84 years, Caucasian, with a history of blood hypertension, ischemic cardiopathy and vesicular lithiasis for 40 years.

The diagnosis was dark coloured, much distended gallbladder with abundant serohematic fluid around the bladder, leading to gallbladder volvulus. She underwent laparoscopic cholecistectomy and recovered satisfactorily.
