Abstract BACKGROUND: The most common type of gallbladder cancer is the adenocarcinoma. The squamous cell carcinoma represents only a 0-12\% of all gallbladder tumors. METHODS: 124 cases of malignant neoplasias of the gallbladder were diagnosed during the last 33 years in the Department of Surgery of our hospital. From these cases, 5 were squamous cell carcinomas, representing 2.41\% of our series. CASE REPORT: The ratio female: male was 1.5:1, and the mean age was 50.2 years. Liver involvement was observed in 4 of 5 patients at the moment of diagnosis. Four patients underwent surgery and one received palliative treatment with percutaneous bile dreinage. The mean survival was 14.5 months. CONCLUSION: The tumor extention at the time of diagnosis is generally advanced and the outcome is not promising in this kind of gallbladder cancer.
