Xanthogranulomatous cholecystitis mimicking gallbladder carcinoma: A diagnostic and therapeutic dilemma

Author(s): Sajjad Hussain
Abstract: Xanthogranulomatous cholecystitis (XGC) is a rare condition, very difficult to diagnose preoperatively. It resembles carcinoma of the gallbladder (Ca G.B) clinically, radiologically and intra-operatively and this confusion between XGC and Ca G.B risk the patients being over or under-treated. Awareness about this rare entity and its characteristic radiological features can be used to alert clinicians to the possibility of XGC masquerading as gallbladder carcinoma.
