A rare case of xanthogranulomatous cholecystitis mimicking gall bladder carcinoma

Abstract

Xanthogranulomatous cholecystitis is an unusual form of benign chronic cholecystitis with focal or diffuse destructive inflammatory process characterized by thickened fibrotic disrupted gall bladder wall with foamy histiocytes and bile extravasation. Its significance lies in the fact that it may simulate malignancy clinically, radiologically, pathologically and on the top of that it may coexist with gall bladder carcinoma leading to diagnostic dilemma.
