 We report a case of left-sided gallbladder(LSG)treated by laparoscopic cholecystectomy(LC). A 36-year-old woman with cholelithiasis was admitted to our hospital. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed gall bladder stones with LSG, and LC was performed. Intraoperative findings showed that the fundus of gallbladder was adhered to the liver bed at left side of the hepatic round ligament. For safe LC in patients with LSG, we made following efforts. First, 5 mm port at subxiphoid was placed more on the left side than usual. Secondly, the round ligament was retracted by a thread fold via the abdominal wall. Thirdly, the body of the gallbladder was retracted to the right cranial side to expose the Calot's triangle. Finaily, the operator stood on the right side of the patient while dissecting the fundus of the gallbladder. A LSG is often associated with anomalies of the bile duct, artery and portal vein. When performing LC for LSG, we must take extra care to avoid the bile duct and vessel injury.
