Hemocholecyst - Acute presentation of carcinoma of gallbladder

Z. Gimmon, E. Okon

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Carcinoma of the gallbladder is rarely diagnosed preoperatively. There is no specific symptomatology and it is indistinguishable from that of gallstone disease. Two cases are presented where acute hemocholecyst was the presenting symptom. Preoperative consideration of this uncommon sign may contribute to the correct preoperative diagnosis of carcinoma of the gallbladder and to the planning of operative management.
