Gallstone (Cholelithiasis) without Cholecystitis, no obstruction

Stones in the gallbladder. Majority of cases are usually asymptomatic. Some cases may give rise to recurrent abdominal pain or vomiting. The gallbladder may become acutely or chronically inflammed or infected and this may require surgery for treatment. Stones may migrate to the bile duct, causing obstruction that requires endosocopic or surgical intervention.
