Resumen

WHITTLE, Carolina et al. Pseudotumoral adenomyomatosis of the gallbladder diagnosed by ultrasound: Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2007, vol.135, n.2, pp. 212-215. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872007000200010.

Adenomyomatosis of the gallbladder wall is a frequent benign degenerative hyperplasia of unknown etiology. In some cases it looks like a malignant tumor. The diagnosis can be suspected during ultrasound examination. We report a 36 year-old male that presented with nonspecific dyspepsia. The ultrasound showed a gallbladder mass with small cyst and echogenic spot inside that suggested the presence of Rokitansky-Ashoff sinuses, seen in adenomyomatosis. The patient was operated and the tumor was excised. The pathological examination of the surgical specimen confirmed the presence of gallbladder adenomyomatosis

Palabras clave : Adenomyoma; Ultrasonography; gallbladder.
