Abstract

Intra cholecystic papillary neoplasm of the gallbladder is a recently established neoplasm among gallbladder tumours by the world health organization in the year 2010. Since it is recently enlisted and rare type of tumour, not much knowledge is available about it in the public domain, intra cholecystic papillary neoplasm of the gallbladder is more common in women than men, and about half of the cases, are incidentally diagnosed, it could be invasive or non-invasive and is histopathologically diagnosed, determines the prognosis and survival rates of the patients. It is closely related to mucinous cystic neoplasm of the pancreas, as it is newly enlisted no defined guidelines to distinguish gall bladder polypoidal mass from adenocarcinoma/adenoma/papillary neoplasm is available, whether a simple cholecystectomy or an extended cholecystectomy would suffice as in our case is to be debated.
