Cancer of the gallbladder is a serious condition. In the majority of cases, it is conventional to say that making the diagnosis of this cancer is practically announcing the death very close to the patient. However, it seems that this remains incompletely true and that various advances have emerged in diagnostic and the rapeutic management. With advances in imaging (transcutaneous ultrasound, computed tomography, endoscopy, magnetic resonance imaging, etc.), those in liver surgery, anesthesia-resuscitation, chemotherapy and radiotherapy, some prognostic improvements are emerging. This presentation is intended to be as complete as possible of the diagnostic and therapeutic possibilities that will allow better management of a patient with cancer of the gallbladder. We will review diagnostic means with some definitions. The essential surgical therapeutic indications, the non-surgical therapies which have given some results. This update also emphasizes the combination of effective therapies such as radical surgery and chemotherapy.

Keywords: gallbladder cannery – early diagnosis - radical surgery – prognostic improvement.
