Suresh Thapa, R Shankaran

Abstract :

Background: Gallstone disease is a major health problem in general population. We aimed to study the clinical and histopathological spectrum of gallstone disease in Western India.Methods: Total of 120 cases of gallstone disease who underwent laparoscopic or open cholecystectomy were studied at tertiary care hospital in period of Nov 2016 to May 2018.Results: Gallstone disease was more common in females compared to males. Right upper quadrant pain (80.8%) was the most common symptom and biliary colic (88.3%) was the most common clinical spectrum. On histopathological evaluation, chronic cholecystitis was seen in 89.2% and carcinoma gallbladder was incidentally detected in 0.8% of cases.Conclusion: Biliary colic is the most common clinical spectrum and chronic cholecystitis is the most common histopathological spectrum in gallstone disease. Routine histopathological evaluation is pertinent to detect incidental carcinoma of gallbladder.
