Ciliated foregut cysts (CFCs) are rare anomalies of the foregut epithelium. The common sites in the abdomen are liver and gall bladder. There are only 16 cases of CFC reported in the gall bladder to date. A 20-year-old girl presented with pain in the right upper abdomen. There was a radiological evidence of cystic lesion in the region of Calot's triangle. A differential diagnosis of either type 2 choledochal cyst or CFC was made. Intraoperative and histopathological findings were suggestive of CFC. CFC should be kept in mind as a rare differential diagnosis when evaluating cysts in the gall bladder fossa.
