We present the first recorded case which received a combined laparoscopic hysterectomy, right salpingo-oophorectomy and cholecystectomy during one anesthetic period in Taiwan. This procedure was done to treat the coexisting benign lesions of the uterus, ovary, and the gall bladder. Postoperative pathological diagnoses was myoma, an ovarian hemorrhagic corpus leutum cyst, cholelithiasis, and cholecystitis. Estimated blood loss was less than 150 ml for the combined procedure. With the total operation time being 135 minutes. The patient recovered soon and could take a regular diet and walk without assistance 20 hours after operation. She discharged 4 days later and returned to work 5 days after discharge. We think for well trained laparoscopists, a cross-specialty cooperation between a gynecologist and a general surgeon to treat coexisting lesions of the uterus and the gall bladder is a safe, feasible, and beneficial procedure.
