    StatPearls. StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL)JoshiJonathan K.JKKirkLindseyLBOOK
  • Adenomyomatosis, also known as adenomyoma or adenomyomatous hyperplasia of the gallbladder, is one of the two hyperplastic cholecystoses. The other hyperplastic cholecystosis is cholesterolosis, also known as "strawberry gallbladder." Adenomyomatosis is a benign condition that is pathologically characterized by hyperplasia of the gallbladder wall mucosa and muscularis propria, with pathognomonic …
  • Gallbladder polyps and adenomyomatosis. [Review]
    Br J Radiol. 2023 Feb; 96(1142):20220115.Riddell ZC, Corallo C, … Foley KG
  • Incidental findings are commonly detected during examination of the gallbladder. Differentiating benign from malignant lesions is critical because of the poor prognosis associated with gallbladder malignancy. Therefore, it is important that radiologists and sonographers are aware of common incidental gallbladder findings, which undoubtedly will continue to increase with growing medical imaging us…

  • The Role of Endoscopic Ultrasound in the Diagnosis of Gallbladder Lesions. [Review]
    Diagnostics (Basel). 2021 Sep 28; 11(10)Hashimoto S, Nakaoka K, … Hirooka Y
  • Gallbladder (GB) diseases represent various lesions including gallstones, cholesterol polyps, adenomyomatosis, and GB carcinoma. This review aims to summarize the role of endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) in the diagnosis of GB lesions. EUS provides high-resolution images that can improve the diagnosis of GB polypoid lesions, GB wall thickness, and GB carcinoma staging. Contrast-enhancing agents may be…
  • Elevation of CA 19-9 in Mirizzi Syndrome in the Absence of Malignancy: A Case Report. [Case Reports]
    Am J Case Rep. 2021 Jul 01; 22:e931819.Moshref LH, Mandili RA, … Miro J
  • BACKGROUND Mirizzi syndrome (MS) is relatively a rare condition; incidence rates may increment with age. It is characterized as an obstruction of the common hepatic duct (CHD) auxiliary to outward compression of an infected stone in the cystic duct. Carbohydrate antigen (CA) 19-9 is a tumor marker that is usually related to upper-gastrointestinal malignancies. However, a few case reports have sho…
  • Gallbladder adenomyomatosis: Diagnosis and management. [Journal Article]
    Int J Surg Case Rep. 2021 Jul; 84:106089.Mejri A, Arfaoui K, … Saad S
  • CONCLUSIONS: The practitioner should always consider gallbladder carcinoma before confirming the GA, as they share the same features but with a far worse prognosis. The likelihood of malignancy depends on radiological characteristics. In the case of inconclusive findings, cholecystectomy is justified.
  • Diffuse Gallbladder Adenomyomatosis in a Child. [Case Reports]
    Cureus. 2021 Jun 09; 13(6):e15555.Pham HD, Ngo MX, Dang TH
  • Adenomyomatosis of the gallbladder is a benign condition, usually occurring in middle age, in which the epithelium of the gallbladder proliferates and the gallbladder wall thickens with the presence of Rokitansky-Aschoff sinuses (RAS). The diffuse form is an unusual subtype of adenomyomatosis. Herein, we describe a 17-year-old female who presented with dull and intermittent pain in the right hypo…
  • Adenomyomatosis of the Common Bile Duct and Ampulla of Vater. [Case Reports]
    GE Port J Gastroenterol. 2021 Feb; 28(2):121-133.Gouveia C, Fidalgo C, … Cravo M
  • Adenomyomatosis is a rare benign lesion that has been observed in different sites throughout the gastrointestinal tract, most frequently in the gallbladder. Few cases have been described in the stomach, small bowel, bile ducts, and ampullary region. Adenomyomas of the vaterian system (ampulla and common bile duct) have important clinical consequences, since the majority of these lesions present w…
  • Diffuse Gallbladder Adenomyomatosis with an Inflammatory Complication in an Adult. [Case Reports]
    Case Rep Gastroenterol. 2021 Jan-Apr; 15(1):100-107.Hoang VT, Van HAT, … Trinh CT
  • Gallbladder adenomyomatosis (GA) is a benign alteration of the gallbladder wall. There are three types involved: segmental, fundal, and diffuse pattern; the last type is very rare. Ultrasound is the imaging method of choice for diagnosing that shows Rokitansky-Aschoff sinuses with cholesterol deposition creating comet-tail artifacts. Asymptomatic GA does not require surgery in case there are no m…
  • Gallbladder polyps ultrasound: what the sonographer needs to know. [Review]
    J Ultrasound. 2021 Jun; 24(2):131-142.Cocco G, Basilico R, … Schiavone C
  • Gallbladder polyps are protuberances of the gallbladder wall projecting into the lumen. They are usually incidentally found during abdominal sonography or diagnosed on histopathology of a surgery specimen, with an estimated prevalence of up to 9.5% of patients. Gallbladder polyps are not mobile and do not demonstrate posterior acoustic shadowing; they may be sessile or pedunculated. Gallbladder p…

  • Bicameral Gallbladder With Chronic Cholecystitis on Hepatobiliary Scintigraphy. [Case Reports]
    Clin Nucl Med. 2021 Jan; 46(1):78-80.Won KY, Kim C
  • Bicameral gallbladder, also known as segmental adenomyomatosis, is not a rare benign condition with the lumen divided into 2 interconnected chambers. Here we present 2 interesting cases of the bicameral gallbladder, which shows unremarkable findings on hepatobiliary scintigraphy at first appearance. However, the CT scan revealed that the fundal chamber was not visualized on the scintigraphy unlik…
  • Imaging-based algorithmic approach to gallbladder wall thickening. [Review]
    World J Gastroenterol. 2020 Oct 28; 26(40):6163-6181.Gupta P, Marodia Y, … Sandhu MS
  • Gallbladder (GB) wall thickening is a frequent finding caused by a spectrum of conditions. It is observed in many extracholecystic as well as intrinsic GB conditions. GB wall thickening can either be diffuse or focal. Diffuse wall thickening is a secondary occurrence in both extrinsic and intrinsic pathologies of GB, whereas, focal wall thickening is mostly associated with intrinsic GB pathologie…
  • Incidental finding of heterotopic supradiaphragmatic liver. [Case Reports]
    J Surg Case Rep. 2020 Oct; 2020(10):rjaa394.Jhamb S, Pillai H, … Palamuthusingam P
  • Here we describe a case of heterotopic, supradiaphragmatic liver in a 65-year-old woman who was referred for investigation of a soft tissue gallbladder mass. Contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging revealed adenomyomatosis of the gallbladder and supradiaphragmatic accessory liver tissue. This is a remarkably rare normal variant.
  • Accuracy of Ultrasound in Diagnosing Gallbladder Polyps at a Community Hospital. [Journal Article]
    JSLS. 2020 Oct-Dec; 24(4)Ostapenko A, Liechty S, … Kleiner D
  • CONCLUSIONS: The accuracy of transabdominal ultrasound in diagnosing true polyps is poor, with only 3% of polyps identified as adenomas based on pathology. Surgeons should use caution when making clinical decisions based on polyps identified on ultrasound, and more stringent diagnostic criteria are needed in order to decrease the false positive rate for diagnosis and screening.
