Abstract


The gall bladder is one of the most commonly resected organs. The number of cholecystectomies has increased by more than 50% in the last decade.
Gallbladder disease is a term for several types of conditions that can affect the gallbladder, the majority being caused by inflammation. A gall
bladder with stone frequently leads to cholecystitis.
Objectives: The aim of the present study is to study the magnitude of lesions in the gallbladder, to study different types of histopathological lesions
occurring in the gallbladder and to co-relate them clinicopathologically.
Methods: We reviewed cholecystectomy cases performed for benign diseases of the gallbladder from June 2017 to May 2019 by investigating
pathological specimens of the gallbladder. We evaluated demographical properties, clinical features and their association with the
pathological diagnosis.
Results: Variety of lesions can be found if cholecystectomy specimens were examined meticulously. Patients usually present with vague
complaints like pain in abdomen, nausea, dyspepsia.Most common pathology noted in our study was chronic cholecystitis. Other benign lesions
were cholesterosis and acute cholecystitis. Various other associated lesions and variants of cholecystitis were also encountered.
Conclusion: Diagnosis was established on histopathology. Hence histopathology remains gold standard for revealing unsuspected lesions.
