Uncommon bile ducts

While carrying out exploratory surgery on a 30-year-old man with abdominal pain, doctors in the US were surprised to discover he had three gall bladders.

The patient was jaundiced and febrile, with a history significant for stones, two endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatographies and a biliary stent placement.

He reported worsening right upper quadrant pain, where it was soft but tender on palpation.
