Gallbladder disease may be of different kinds, depending on which part of the biliary system is affected. Some of the common variations include:
- Cholecystitis: This is due to a gallstone obstruction that causes inflammation or infection of the gallbladder.
- Cholelithiasis: The gallbladder has a stone, without any inflammation or infection.
- Choledocholithiasis: It shows the presence of a gallstone in the bile duct.
