Pathology of Eosinophilic Cholecystitis

Dr Sampurna Roy  MD 

 

Eosinophilic cholecystitis is a rare form of cholecystitis.

Histologically, it is characterized by a dense, transmural leukocyte infiltrate composed of more than 90% eosinophils.

The etiology remains obscure, although it had been associated with  hypereosinophilic syndromes, eosinophilic gastroenteritis, cholelithiasis, and acalculous cholecystitis. 

When there is an excess of eosinophils, one should be aware of worms, antibiotic therapy, allergy or eosinophilic granulomatous arteritis such as Churg-Strauss syndrome.
