Cholesterolosis (strawberry) gallbladder is the accumulation of cholesterol-laden macrophages within the submucosa,  and is a common incidental finding at autopsy.

    

Cholesterolosis per se is symptomless.

Symptoms, if any are generally due to associated gallstones or cholecystitis.

Cholesterolosis is often accompanied by one or more cholesterol stones and is therefore thought to reflect the presence of bile supersaturated with cholesterol.

Cholesterol stones are thought to be derived from the deposits in the mucous membrane.

Grossly, in fresh state the interior of the gallbladder looks something like a strawberry, the yellow specks (submucous aggregations of cholesterol crystals and cholesterol esters) corresponds to the seeds.

Microscopically, the mucosal folds are swollen. Large, foamy lipid laden macrophages, in which a small dark nuclei are present in the villous processes of the mucosa. Initially the lesion involves the tips, later they fill the entire villous process.
