  • An Overview of Ascariasis Involvement in Gallbladder Disease: A Systematic Review of Case Reports. [Review]
    Cureus. 2022 Dec; 14(12):e32545.Inyang B, Koshy FS, … Mohammed L
  • Ascaris lumbricoides is the most common type of helminth infection in humans. It affects more than one billion of the world's population. Children living in developing nations are prone to ascariasis, presenting with obstructive biliary illnesses. Migration of Ascaris worms through the major duodenal papilla to the hepatobiliary system leads to symptoms of biliary colic and complications along th…
  • Rare But Fatal: Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) With Acute Acalculous Cholecystitis. [Case Reports]
    Cureus. 2022 Nov; 14(11):e31737.Javed F, Crouch J, Combs E
  • Acalculous cholecystitis is an acute inflammatory disease of the gall bladder with high morbidity and mortality rate. It can be seen in trauma, burns, sepsis, total parenteral nutrition, prolonged fasting, and autoimmune diseases. However, there are very few reports of acalculous cholecystitis with macrophage activation syndrome (MAS) and hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) in patients with …
  • Orbital inflammatory pseudotumor revealing multi-organ immunoglobulin G4-related disease. [Case Reports]
    Int J Rheum Dis. 2022 Nov 29 [Online ahead of print]Ben Salah R, Kammoun S, … Bahloul Z
  • Relatively recently, the concept that immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4)-related disease is a distinct chronic inflammatory disorder rather than a subset of Sjögren's syndrome has been accepted. IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is a fibro-inflammatory systemic immune-mediated condition that can affect the pancreas, salivary glands, and lymph nodes. Almost every organ may be impacted synchronously or metachro…
  • Acalculous cholecystitis presentation in a young patient. [Case Reports]
    J Family Med Prim Care. 2022 Jul; 11(7):4033-4035.Biggs M, Abutalib J, Roach P
  • Acute acalculous cholecystitis accounts for only 5-10% of cholecystitis cases and is often associated with severe trauma, critical illness, or chronic disease. Our case describes an otherwise healthy 25-year-old female presenting with acute abdominal pain. After undergoing a magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography and cholescintigraphy she was diagnosed with acute acalculous cholecystitis. He…
  • Safe and effective short-time percutaneous cholecystostomy: A retrospective observational study. [Journal Article]
    Medicine (Baltimore). 2022 Nov 04; 101(44):e31412.Šimunić M, Cambj Sapunar L, … Božić D
  • The introduction of percutaneous cholecystostomy (PCT) has shifted the paradigm in treatment of acute calculous and acalculous cholecystitis. PCT has high success and low complication rates, but there are still unresolved issues regarding the duration of the procedure. The aim of our study is to determine the characteristics and outcome of patients treated with short-term PCT drainage. Patients w…
  • Celiac Disease and Gallbladder: Pathophysiological Aspects and Clinical Issues. [Review]
    Nutrients. 2022 Oct 19; 14(20)Poddighe D, Dossybayeva K, … Ibrayeva A
  • Background: Celiac Disease (CD) is an immune-mediated disorder which primarily affects the small intestine; however, extra-intestinal organs are often affected by the pathological process, too. As regards the digestive system, liver alterations in CD patients have been widely described, which can also extend to the biliary tract. Notably, gallbladder function can be altered in CD patients. In thi…
  • StatPearls: Chronic Cholecystitis [BOOK]
    StatPearls. StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL)Jones MW, Gnanapandithan K, … Ferguson TBOOK
  • Chronic cholecystitis is a chronic condition caused by ongoing inflammation of the gallbladder resulting in mechanical or physiological dysfunction its emptying. It presents as a smoldering course that can be accompanied by acute exacerbations of increased pain (acute biliary colic), or it can progress to a more severe form of cholecystitis requiring urgent intervention (acute cholecystitis). The…
  • StatPearls: Acalculous Cholecystitis [BOOK]
    StatPearls. StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL)JonesMark W.MWMcLaren Greater Lansing, MSUCOMFergusonTroyTMichigan State UniversityBOOK
  • Acalculous cholecystitis is a form of cholecystitis caused by dysfunction or hypokinesis of gallbladder emptying. The more commonly encountered condition of cholecystitis is caused by a mechanical blockage of the gallbladder outlet at the cystic duct, usually by a gallstone. Duncan first described the condition of acalculous cholecystitis in 1844. Although it can present acutely, acalculous chole…
  • StatPearls: Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy [BOOK]
    StatPearls. StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL)Hassler KR, Collins JT, … Jones MWBOOK
  • Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure for removal of a diseased gallbladder. This technique essentially has replaced the open technique for routine cholecystectomies since the early 1990s. At this time, laparoscopic cholecystectomy is indicated for the treatment of cholecystitis (acute/chronic), symptomatic cholelithiasis, biliary dyskinesia, acalculous cholecyst…

    StatPearls. StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL)JonesMark W.MWMcLaren Greater Lansing, MSUCOMKashyapSarangSEaston HospitalFergusonTroyTMichigan State UniversityBOOK
  • There are several variations and etiologies of gallbladder disease. Chronic and acute cholecystitis are the two ways this condition can present. Calculous and acalculous (with or without gallstones or cholelithiasis) are also variants of this disease. The most common form of gallbladder disease is chronic cholecystitis with cholelithiasis. Up to 15% of the population of the United States has asym…

  • BACKGROUND COVID-19 disease, caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, has been one of the greatest challenges in modern medicine. It is mostly known to affect the pulmonary system, leading to pneumonia and acute respiratory distress syndrome, but there is a growing body of evidence of extrapulmonary manifestations of COVID-19 disease. CASE REPORT This article presents 3 cases of various extrapulmonary sym…
  • Acalculous Cholecystitis Secondary to Hepatitis C Infection. [Case Reports]
    Cureus. 2022 Jul; 14(7):e26484.Gaisinskaya P, Sugerik S, Gebara CM
  • Acute acalculous cholecystitis (AAC) represents gallbladder inflammation without evidence of gallstones. This typically results from gallbladder stasis and/or ischemia, which then causes a local inflammatory response within the wall. The condition is typically multifactorial and seen in critically ill patients, with associated risk factors that include trauma, burns, infections, total parenteral …
