Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.130
Pages: 
903–6
Synopsis: 
Patients with cholelithiasis were reviewed with ultrasound for acute and chronic cholecystitis. Patients 60 years and younger were more likely to have cholecystitis than older patients.


ABSTRACT

Objective: This study was undertaken to examine the correlation between age and gender and the presence of ultrasound findings of acute or chronic cholecystitis in adult patients with cholelithiasis.

Method: The demographic data of all patients diagnosed with cholelithiasis and cholecystitis on ultrasound between January 1, 2002 and December 31, 2006 were reviewed and statistically analysed.
