Perforation of the gall bladder is rare in acalculous cholecystitis, more so following infection with Salmonella typhi. This is a case report of a 55 year old lady who presented with fever for 3 weeks duration with sudden severe generalized pain abdomen associated with bilious vomiting for 2days. The patient was investigated and in view of signs of generalized peritonitis, exploratory laparotomy was done. Operative finding was gallbladder perforation and she underwent cholecystectomy. Post operative period was uneventful and the patient was discharged on 10th post operative day.
