Abstract

Polypoid lesions of the gallbladder (PLG) are rare in the paediatric population. Growth in technology with the availability of high-quality ultrasonography and in the experience of radiologists in detecting such lesions, has led to an increase in incidental detection of PLG. In children, the occur either as a primary disorder or in association with other conditions, including metachromatic leukodystrophy, Peutz- Jeghers syndrome, or pancreatobiliary malunion [1]. Due the rarity of these lesions in the paediatric age group, accurate management algorithms are inherited from the adult population. In these, PLG is a more common pathology, occurring in 4–7% of patients undergoing ultrasonography, with clinical significance relating largely to their malignant potential [2,3].
