Description Cholecystectomy is one of the most frequently performed surgery in the world and often made with benign conditions. Routinely cholecystectomy specimens sent for histopathologic examination. The histopathologic examination of the cholecystectomy specimens are benign in most of the cases and the incidental malignancy of the gallbladder is 2-2.9% in the literature. The histopathologic evaluations of the gallbladder come with additional workload for pathology and surgery departments. Also there is additional cost for the patients. Because of that the idea of selective histopathologic examination has been raised.
