Chronic cholecystitis

Chronic cholecystitis

 

  • Chronic cholecystitis can be presented  with hypertrophy or atrophy of bladder mucosa.
  • The wall is focally infiltrated by lymphocytes and plasma cells, and in a state of exacerbation – with segmented leukocytes.
  • On the top of mucosa can be found groups of bright ‘foamy’ (pseudo-xantoma) cells.
  • Parts of the glands ‘sink’ deep into the wall (Rokitansky-Ashoff glands), but this should not be mistaken for a neoplastic infiltration.
