Spontaneous gallbladder perforation (GBP) is a rare condition. Most of these perforations occur at the fundal region of the gallbladder. Perforation occurring at the neck of the gallbladder seems to be the rarest phenomenon. We herein describe a case of spontaneous GBP occurring at the neck of gallbladder in an 8-year-old boy, which was managed satisfactorily by surgical exploration and cholecystectomy.
