Bile ducts of Luschka (also called supravesicular ducts) are small bile ducts in the gallbladder bed. Although they do not drain any liver parenchyma, they can be a source of bile leak or biliary peritonitis after cholecystectomy in both adults and children, as shown in this case report. As a reminder, variations of biliary anatomy in the gallbladder bed and cholecysto-hepatic triangle of Calot, are reviewed.
