Presentation A young man presents with epigastric and right upper quadrant discomfort. An ultrasound of the abdomen was performed. 
Caption: Sagittal and transverse views of the gall bladder
Description: The gallbladder is distended with fluid that has uniform echogenicity similar to that of liver – suggestive of mucoid nature of the fluid. The gallbladder wall is of normal thickness.
Caption: Views of the neck of the gallbladder
Description: A calculus is seen obstructing the neck of the gall bladder, which is most likely responsible for the chronic longstanding non-inflammatory distention of the gallbladder.
