Introduction: Abnormal peritoneal folds are often found in the abdomen. They may cause serious problems like obstruction of the intestine. This report discusses a case of an omento-cystic peritoneal fold in a male cadaver. Case report: We report an omento-cystic peritoneal fold seen in an adult male cadaver. The fold extended upwards from the right end of the greater omentum to the gallbladder. It enclosed the gallbladder completely. The gallbladder was slightly larger than its normal size. The quadrate lobe was rudimentary and was represented as a small bar of hepatic tissue between the gallbladder and the fissure for ligamentum teres. Conclusion: The knowledge of this variation may be of importance during radiological diagnosis, liver transplant surgery and laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
