Lightbulb Phrygian Gall

In medicine, a Phrygian cap is the folded portion of some gallbladders that resembles the Phrygian cap (a soft conical cap with the top pulled forward, associated in antiquity with the inhabitants of Phrygia, a region of central Anatolia).. It is a normal anatomical variant seen in 1-6% of patients..

The gallbladder is a hollow organ that sits just beneath the right lobe of the liver.In adults, the gallbladder measures approximately 8 centimetres (3.1 in) in length and 4 centimetres (1.6 in) in diameter when fully distended...

Gallstones are the most common problem to affect the gallbladder..Gallstones generally form when the bile is saturated with either cholesterol or bilirubin...
