As Gall bladder carcinoma is not uncommon and its outcome is very unsatisfactory because of its late presentation, this one-year study was conducted in BIRDEM and BSMMU to validate different surgical procedures on management of gall bladder cancer and its outcome. Patients were randomly selected irrespective of their age, sex and mode of presentation. A total 40 patients were included in the study. Among them 27 were female and 13 were male. The mean age (years) of the subjects were 58, ranging from 38-76, and female: male ratio was 2: 1. Curative surgery was done in 22 patients. Palliative surgery was done in 18 patients. Regarding outcome of operative treatment of Gall Bladder carcinoma after six month survival rate was 90.9% out of 22 patients and 38.89% out of 11 patients after palliative surgery. After curative surgery 9.1% out of 22 and after palliative surgery 61.11% out of 18 patients died.
