Abstract:   (1197 Views)

Eosinophilic cholecystitis is a rare inflammatory condition encountered in surgical cholecystectomy specimens. In terms of histopathology, it is defined by transmural infiltration of eosinophils composing more than 90% of leukocytes. We here report a case of 19-year-old male admitted with thalassemia intermedia and with severe left upper quadrant pain. The patient underwent open splenectomy and cholecystectomy. In his histopathologic examination eosinophilic infiltration was found in gallbladder wall.
