Clonorchiasis, a disease caused by infection with Clonorchis sinensis, is endemic in the Far East. Cholelithiasis, pyogenic cholangitis, cholecystitis, and biliary tract obstruction are common complications of chronic infection. Although cholecystitis caused by clonorchiasis is common, it is rarely reported as resulting from eosinophilic infiltration. We report a rare case of clonorchiasis-associated perforated eosinophilic cholecystitis and review the relevant literature.
