The presence of aberrant peritoneal folds is one of the differential diagnoses of intestinal obstruction in the pediatric population. Therefore, knowing the variations in the attachment pattern of peritoneum and its folds is essential. In this context, we report a rare peritoneal fold found during the routine human cadaveric dissection of the abdomen, which is attached superiorly to the liver including the gallbladder and inferiorly extended as a bilaminar fold with one attaching to duodenum and other to transverse colon. In addition, the sigmoid colon was completely plastered to the posterior pelvic wall. This variant peritoneal fold is named as hepato-duodeno-colic ligament and is described in detail with its clinical context. The knowledge regarding this abnormal peritoneal fold would be highly useful for surgeons while planning laparoscopic procedures in the upper quadrant of the abdomen.
