Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

The objective of our study was to review and illustrate the various clinical entities that may cause diffuse thickening of the gallbladder wall on diagnostic imaging studies.

CONCLUSION:

Diffuse gallbladder wall thickening may be caused by a wide range of gallbladder diseases and extracholecystic pathologic conditions. In most cases its cause can be determined by correlation of the clinical presentation and associated imaging findings.
