Tuberculosis (TB) is an infectious disease that can involve any organ system of the body. Abdominal TB can be gastrointestinal, lymph-nodal, visceral or peritoneal. Gall bladder (GB) is rarely involved as a primary organ in abdominal TB. On extensive research, the literature on gall bladder TB is limited to case reports. There has been no review on this rare abdominal pathology. The GB tuberculosis is difficult to diagnose preoperatively. It is a rare differential among the more common gall bladder pathologies like cholelithiasis, or a gall bladder malignancy. Standard histopathology of a resected specimen helps in this rare diagnosis. Subjecting every specimen to histopathological examination followed by medical treatment offers a chance to cure. Through this review the authors have tried to provide an insight into this entity.
