: Gallbladder duplication is a rare congenital
malformation, occurring in about one per 4000 births resulting

Here, we describe a chromosomal mutation (46,X,t(X;10
(p11.2;Q24.3) with duplicated fetal gallbladder which it was
not described previously.
: A 22-year-old woman
(gravida 1, parite 0) was referred to our hospital at 18 weeks
of gestation for a routine ultrasound examination. A fetal
duplication of gallbladder was diagnosed with ultrasonography
and fetal magnetic resonance imaging. Amniocentesis was
performed for prenatal diagnosis, and it was revealed that 46,
