Cholecystoduodenal fistula caused by aggressive mucinous gallbladder carcinoma with a porcelain gallbladder.

Clin J Gastroenterol 2019 Mar 27. Epub 2019 Mar 27.

Division of Gastroenterology, Shinko Hospital, 1-4-47 Wakihama-cho, Chuo-ku, Kobe, Hyogo, 651-0072, Japan.

Cholecystoduodenal fistula secondary to gallbladder carcinoma (GBC) is extremely rare and develops when the tumor penetrates into the adjacent duodenum. A porcelain gallbladder is also a very rare entity that involves the calcification of the gallbladder wall and can be associated with the development of GBC. Herein, we report an unusual case of a patient with cholecystoduodenal fistula, which has been caused by aggressive mucinous gallbladder carcinoma with a porcelain gallbladder. Read More

Prospective observational study on cholelithiasis in patients with carcinoma gall bladder in a tertiary referral hospital of Eastern India.

J Cancer Res Ther 2019 Jan-Mar;15(1):153-156

Department of Surgery, IPGMER/SSKM Hospital; Department of Surgical Oncology, Chittaranjan National Cancer Institute, Kolkata, West Bengal, India.

Context: Gallbladder carcinoma (GBCA) is the fifth most common types of gastrointestinal malignancy and is the most common malignancy of the biliary tract. Cholelithiasis, gallbladder polyps, porcelain gall, and choledochal cysts are common known associations with GBCA. Because of the better understanding of the etiopathogenesis, the traditional nihilistic attitude toward the prognosis has, over the years, given way to greater interest and hope for treating the disease.

Dysplasia in Gallbladder: What Should We Do?

J Gastrointest Surg 2019 Apr 13;23(4):686-689. Epub 2018 Sep 13.

Department of Pathology and Immunology, Washington University in St. Louis, 660 S. Euclid Ave, CB: 8118, St. Louis, MO, 63110, USA.

Introduction: On occasional cholecystectomies, pathologists encounter incidental dysplasia in the gallbladder mucosa in the sections submitted per protocol for histologic examination. If dysplasia is identified, additional sections are taken and/or the gallbladder is entirely submitted to rule out underlying adenocarcinoma. The aim of our study was to assess the incidence of subsequent identification of invasive adenocarcinoma on additional sections, after an incidentally detected dysplasia was noted on a routine cholecystectomy section.

Metformin treatment prevents gallstone formation but mimics porcelain gallbladder in C57Bl/6 mice.

Eur J Pharmacol 2018 Aug 5;833:165-172. Epub 2018 Jun 5.

Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology, Shiraz School of Pharmacy, Shiraz University of Medical Sciences, Shiraz, Iran. Electronic address:

Gallstone disease (GD) is highly correlated with metabolic syndrome and its related illnesses including type II diabetes (DMII) and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). While previous studies claimed that metformin decreases the chance of developing GD in PCOS patients, this phenomenon has not been investigated in animal models to date. Here we fed a high fat diet (HFD) containing 2% of cholesterol and 1% of cholic acid to ten-week-old male C57Bl/6 mice for 105 days. Read More

Porcelain Gallbladder: Often an Overlooked Entity.

Surg J (N Y) 2017 Oct 14;3(4):e145-e147. Epub 2017 Sep 14.

Radiology Department, Colchester General Hospital, CHUFT, Colchester, United Kingdom.

 Porcelain gallbladder (GB) is a rare but potentially premalignant condition with minimal symptoms. Accident and Emergency (A&E) departments often tend to investigate abdominal pain through plain radiographs, which are occasionally reported by radiologists, thereby leaving behind few uncommon conditions, such as porcelain gallbladder unreported.  We present three cases of porcelain GB in which initial diagnosis was not considered due to the presence of various other calcifications in the upper abdomen.

Sultan Qaboos Univ Med J 2016 Nov 30;16(4):e416-e421. Epub 2016 Nov 30.

Department of Surgery, Sultan Qaboos University Hospital, Muscat, Oman.

Gallbladder calcification, also referred to as porcelain gallbladder, has received significant attention in the medical literature due to its perceived role in increasing the risk of developing a gallbladder carcinoma. However, recent reports raise questions challenging this purported high risk. While previous studies reported a concomitant incidence of gallbladder cancer in porcelain gallbladder ranging from 7-60%, more recent analyses indicate the incidence to be much lower (6%).

The gallbladder: uncommon gallbladder conditions and unusual presentations of the common gallbladder pathological processes.

Abdom Imaging 2015 Feb;40(2):385-99

Department of Radiology, Yale School of Medicine, 20 York St, New Haven, CT, 06510, USA,

This article reviews a spectrum of gallbladder conditions that are either uncommon or represent unusual manifestations of common diseases. These conditions are divided into four major categories: (a) congenital anomalies and normal variants including duplication, ectopia, and lymphangioma; (b) inflammatory processes and stone-related diseases and complications including adenomyomatosis, emphysematous cholecystitis, xanthogranulomatous cholecystitis, gangrenous and hemorrhagic cholecystitis, perforation, gallstone ileus, and Bouveret and Mirizzi syndromes; (c) gallbladder neoplasms including adenocarcinoma with associated porcelain gallbladder, squamous cell carcinoma, lymphoma, melanoma, and neurofibroma. A thorough understanding of the imaging characteristics of each condition can help the radiologist to make a timely and accurate diagnosis, thus avoiding potentially harmful delays in patient management and decreasing morbidity and mortality rates.

The role of diffusion-weighted examination in non-polyploid gallbladder malignancies: A preliminary study.

Turk J Gastroenterol 2013 ;24(2):148-53

Sifa University Hospital, Department of Radiology, İzmir, Turkey.

Background/aims: The aim of the present study was to investigate the diagnostic value of diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging in gallbladder malignancies, which are typically diagnosed during surgery because the radiologic findings are similar to those of cholecystitis-caused diffuse thickening of the gallbladder wall.

Materials And Methods: Seven patients with gallbladder malignancies and nine patients with benign gallbladder pathology were included in this study. In one of the patients with a malignancy, a lesion was determined on the porcelain gallbladder; in another patient, acute myeloblastic leukemia had infiltrated the gallbladder, causing the diffuse wall thickening.

Routine histopathology of gallbladder after elective cholecystectomy for gallstones: waste of resources or a justified act?

BMC Surg 2013 Jul 8;13:26. Epub 2013 Jul 8.

Department of Surgery, Liaquat University of Medical & Health Sciences, Jamshoro 71000, Pakistan.

Background: Selective approach for sending cholecystectomy specimens for histopathology results in missing discrete pathologies such as premalignant benign lesions such as porcelain gallbladder, carcinoma-in-situ, and early carcinomas. To avoid such blunders therefore, every cholecystectomy specimen should be routinely examined histologically. Unfortunately, the practice of discarding gallbladder specimen is standard in most tertiary care hospitals of Pakistan including the primary investigators' own institution. Read More

Porcelain gallbladder: a benign process or concern for malignancy?

J Gastrointest Surg 2013 Jun 20;17(6):1161-8. Epub 2013 Feb 20.

Department of General Surgery, Lahey Clinic, Burlington, MA 01805, USA.

Background: Gallbladder wall calcifications, otherwise known as porcelain gallbladder, have received considerable attention due to its perceived association with gallbladder carcinoma. While the perception of a strong correlation persists, more recent reports raise conceivable doubts.

Study Design: A systematic literature search was conducted of human studies describing gallbladder wall calcification and its association with gallbladder malignancy. Read More

Single-incision laparoscopic cholecystectomy for porcelain gallbladder: a case report.

Asian J Endosc Surg 2013 Feb;6(1):52-4

Division of Surgical Oncology, Department of Surgery, Nagoya University Graduate School of Medicine, Nagoya, Japan.

Single-incision laparoscopic cholecystectomy (SILC) has been performed in patients with gallbladder stones without inflammation. Porcelain gallbladder is a rare finding of chronic cholecystitis that is characterized by extensive calcification of the gallbladder wall. Herein we describe our experience with SILC for porcelain gallbladder with a successful outcome. Read More

Single-incision laparoscopic cholecystectomy versus traditional four-port cholecystectomy.

Proc (Bayl Univ Med Cent) 2012 Oct;25(4):319-23

Department of Surgery, Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas.

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy has traditionally been performed using multiple small sites. Single-incision laparoscopic surgery has emerged as an alternative technique to improve cosmesis and minimize complications associated with multiple incisions. A retrospective study was performed of all patients who underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy by a single surgeon (DTA) from April 2008 to August 2011. Read More

Incidental gallbladder cancer during laparoscopic cholecystectomy: managing an unexpected finding.

World J Gastroenterol 2012 Aug;18(30):4019-27

Department of Surgery, General Surgery and Breast Unit, University of Catania, Via S. Sofia 78, 95123 Catania, Italy.

Aim: To evaluate the impact of incidental gallbladder cancer on surgical experience.

Methods: Between 1998 and 2008 all cases of cholecystectomy at two divisions of general surgery, one university based and one at a public hospital, were retrospectively reviewed. Gallbladder pathology was diagnosed by history, physical examination, and laboratory and imaging studies [ultrasonography and computed tomography (CT)]. Read More

Hyalinizing cholecystitis and associated carcinomas: clinicopathologic analysis of a distinctive variant of cholecystitis with porcelain-like features and accompanying diagnostically challenging carcinomas.

Am J Surg Pathol 2011 Aug;35(8):1104-13

Department of Pathology, Emory University, Atlanta, GA 30322, USA.

We describe a clinicopathologically distinct subtype of cholecystitis, the extensively calcific version of which has been presented in the clinical literature as "porcelain gallbladder (PG)." This cholecystitis, which we propose to refer to as hyalinizing cholecystitis (HC), is characterized by dense, paucicellular hyaline fibrosis transforming the gallbladder (GB) wall into a relatively thin and uniform band. The process diffusely effaces most of the normal structures of GB, and some cases show calcifications. Read More

Calcified carcinoma of the gallbladder with calcified nodal metastasis presenting as a porcelain gallbladder: a case report.

Cancer Res Treat 2011 Mar 31;43(1):71-4. Epub 2011 Mar 31.

Department of Radiology, Kangdong Sacred Heart Hospital, Hallym University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Porcelain gallbladder is regarded as a risk factor of gallbladder cancer. A porcelain gallbladder with calcified regional lymph nodes was found using computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in a 43-year-old man who presented with nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. His cholecystectomy specimen showed diffuse wall thickening and contained small gallstones. Read More
