Gall bladder perforation as a sequel of typhoid-induced acalculous cholecystitis is a rare clinical encounter, reported sparsely in literature. Here, we discuss a case wherein successful laparoscopic management of typhoid-induced gall bladder perforation was performed. A 24-year-old female presented with a history of 5 days of fever and acute pain in the abdomen for 2 days. Computed tomography scan suggested gall bladder perforation which was confirmed on diagnostic laparoscopy. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy with peritoneal lavage was performed. The patient did well postoperatively and was discharged on post-operative day 4 after drain removal. One should be aware about the possibility of gall bladder perforation as a sequel of acalculous cholecystitis in typhoid fever. Minimal access surgery techniques can be applied for confirming the diagnosis as well as the definitive treatment.
