78 non-pathological Gall Bladders were studied morphometrically. The length and breadth of GB was measured. The measurements were taken by measuring Tape. Morphologically Normal (Pyriform) GBs were 53.2%, cylindrical 11.4%, oval shaped 11.4%, partially intra hepatic 5.1 %, intra hepatic 3.8%, hour glass 6.3%, Phrygian cap 3.8%, double GB 1.3%, left sided 2.5%. Metrically length and breadth of GB was highly significant (p<0.01). This study will certainly help anatomists, anthropologists and medico legal experts to compare the south Indian GB parameters with that of other parts of the country and abroad. Moreover to radiologists to differentiate Reidel’s lobe of the liver with variations of the gall bladder and laparoscopic surgeons during cholecystectomy.
