The gall bladder is a thin-walled, pear-shaped sac under the right lobe of the liver. In adults, it is typically about 9 centimeters long, about the width of a hand, but can be anything from 4 to 14 cm. A typical capacity is 50 milliliters, but in disease can be as much as 150 mL. It is shown in green in the drawing.
