Pathology of Acalculous Cholecystitis

Dr Sampurna Roy  MD    

 

Acalculous cholecystitis accounts for 10% of cases of all cases of acute cholecystitis.

In comparison to ordinary acute cholecystitis, acalculous cholecystitis has a higher likelihood of gangrene and perforation and as well as significantly higher morbidity and mortality rate.

It is more common in the elderly and in male patients.

Patients are usually severely debilitated, due to severe trauma, sepsis, shock, burns or other disease conditions.

Acalculous cholecystitis may complicate hypotension in trauma, surgery, child birth, burns, septicemia or hyperalimentation and in AIDS or bone marrow transplantation or in association with diabetes mellitus. 

The trauma, burns or surgery usually precede the on-set of cholecystitis by two weeks. 

The histology is like that of acute cholecystitis.
