Cholelithiasis disease

«A gallstone is a stone formed within the gallbladder out of bile components.[2] The term cholelithiasis may refer to the presence of gallstones or to the diseases caused by gallstones.[5] Most people with gallstones (about 80%) never have symptoms.[2][3] When a gallstone blocks the bile duct, a cramp-like pain in the right upper part of the abdomen, known as biliary colic (gallbladder attack) can result.[4] This happens in 1–4% of those with gallstones each year.[4] Complications of gallstones may include inflammation of the gallbladder (cholecystitis), inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis), jaundice, and infection of a bile duct (cholangitis).[4][6] Symptoms of these complications may include pain of more than five hours duration, fever, yellowish skin, vomiting, dark urine, and pale stools.[2]
