Chronic cholecystitis was found in 2792 (81.6%) patients, acute cholecystitis in 237 (6.9%), and cholesterolosis
in 223 (6.5%) (Table 1).
Others included adenomyoma (9.09%, n = 1), papillary hyperplasia (9.09%, n = 1), cholesterolosis
(9.09%, n = 1) and xanthogranulomatous cholecystitis (9.09%, n = 1) (Table 5).
Gallbladder polyps can either be benign, such as hyperplasia and lipid deposits (cholesterolosis
), or malignant, which is rare.
In addition, NCEH1, ABCG5, and ABCG8 are reported to be drug targets of pioglitazone  and ezetimibe  in the therapy of human gallbladder cholesterolosis
and HFD-induced fatty liver.
Organs tinged by bilirubin include the cirrhotic liver (E) and the gallbladder with cholesterolosis
and yellow-green gallstones (F).
, xanthogranulomatous cholecystitis, benign polyps, pre-malignant and malignant conditions are the less common pathological entities6.
Association between cholesterolosis
and gallbladder cancer.
. Incidence, correlation with serum cholesterol level and the role of laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
Histologic examination showed that in almost half of the gallbladders, the only abnormality was cholesterolosis
or cholesterol polyps; 94% of the gallbladders had benign lesions.
The majority of these lesions are not neoplastic but are hyperplastic or represent lipid deposits (cholesterolosis

and hyperplasia are the inflammatory polyps (3).
