The patient was taken to the operating room for an exploratory laparotomy based on symptoms and positive peritoneal signs as well as imaging findings. On entering the peritoneum, a significant amount of bile was found. An approximately 4-cm laceration was noted in the inferior surface of the gallbladder (Figure 4). The gallbladder was surgically removed. There was no other traumatic injury in the abdomen. The postoperative course was uneventful. The patient was discharged 5 days after the accident in stable condition.
