Gallbladder carcinoma is the fifth most common gastrointestinal malignancy and the most common malignancy of the biliary system, with a high incidence in the Gangetic belt of India. The 5-year survival rate is nearly 19.0% because of the aggressive nature of the lesion. We report a rare case of a 35-year-old female who presented with complaints of pain in the right upper abdomen with jaundice, bloating, and intolerance to fatty food for 3 months and the lump in the right upper abdomen for 1 month. Ultrasonography and computed tomography were performed which showed a thickening in the fundic region of the gallbladder with infiltration into the liver. Extended cholecystectomy was done, and a diagnosis of well-differentiated adenocarcinoma with xanthogranulomatous cholecystitis with tubercular lymphadenitis was made.
