An 82-year-old woman was diagnosed with cholecystitis with a right-sided round ligament. We planned a single-incision laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Based on the findings of fluorescent cholangiography, the running course of the common bile duct was confirmed before dissection of Calot's triangle, and the confluence between the cystic duct and the common bile duct was exposed after the dissection of Calot's triangle. The planned surgery was successful. The operative time and intraoperative blood loss were 157 min and 2 mL, respectively. The patient was discharged from our hospital 3 days after surgery. Application of fluorescent cholangiography during a laparoscopic cholecystectomy for the patients with a right-sided round ligament should be widely accepted.
