Acute gallbladder perforation, an infrequent though not uncommon complication of Cholelithiasis and acalculus cholecystitis is reviewed using as materials 16 Arab patients (6 males and 10 females; one Egyptian and 15 Saudis) with gallbladder perforation among 952 patients who had undergone cholecystectomy in Asir Central Hospital between 1990 and 1994. The presentation, method of diagnosis and treatment modalities are compared with recent literature review findings. Since cholecystitis (calculus and acalculus) is a common pathology in Saudi Arabia a preoperative awareness of this complication of the disease will improve diagnosis and minimize morbidity and mortality of gallbladder perforation.
