Gall bladder cancer is a very rare disease but most common in the biliary system. It has a poor prognosis because it is usually detected at an advanced stage due to no specific symptoms. So sometimes all that is needed is a proper pain control. It is important to remember that newly developed pain area can be a referred pain due to a cancer. We present a patient with a gall bladder cancer who suffered from right scapular and paravertebral pain. For his pain relief, we tried celiac plexus block and his pain was dramatically relieved.
Key Words: celiac plexus block; gall bladder cancer; referred pain
