Contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) has been used to diagnose gallbladder (GB) diseases for recent years because it is sensitive to visualize vascularity. Herein, we report a case who had a 1.7 cm × 1.2 cm polypoid lesion located in the gallbladder fundus with a feeding artery located in the stalk. On CEUS, the lesion showed early arterial phase enhancement (time to peak enhancement 18 s), persisting throughout the venous and delay phases. This enhancing pattern suggested that the lesion was a GB adenoma rather than a GB carcinoma. Cholecystectomy was performed, and pathology of the tissue revealed tubular adenoma of the GB.
