ABSTRACT: Introduction & Objective: About 12% of complications of cholecystitis are reported to be the fistula between the gall bladder and the gastrointestinal tract. In this article, a case of inflammatory adhesion between the gall bladder and the transverse colon is reported. Due to the importance of this phenomenon, the literature has been reviewed in order to highlight anatomical relation between these two viscera. Case: A case of inflammatory adhesion between the gall bladder and the adjacent part of transverse colon was observed during routine dissection of abdominal cavity of a male middle age cadaver. The adhesional fold contained multiple fistulae between the fundus of gall bladder and the adjacent part of transverse colon. Through the round openings of these fistulae, the green bile material appeared to have been passed from the gall bladder to the colon. Conclusion: In cases of untreated chronic cholecystitis, this kind of inflammatory adhesion between the gall bladder and the adjacent part of transverse colon and subsequent fistulae used to be a usual complication. Because of low level of hygiene and medical services, the frequency of these complications, was not uncommon in the past, but their occurrence has decreased in recent decades. Meanwhile, due to the possibility of occurrence, the emphasis on anatomical relation of these two viscera, and drafting an integrated discussion of anatomy, developmental and clinical aspects of heptorenal pouch is mandatory in the educational areas.
