cholecystitis (XGC) is an uncommon inflammatory disease of the gallbladder characterized by the infiltration of plasma cells, lipid-laden histiocytes, and the proliferation of fibroblasts in the gallbladder wall.
The mucosal surface is ulcerated and cross sections through the wall reveals xanthogranulomatous
foci, which appear as yellow nodules or plaques.
Epithelial cyst in cerebellopontine angle with xanthogranulomatous
changes simulating cholesterol granuloma.
cholecystitis, benign polyps, pre-malignant and malignant conditions are the less common pathological entities6.

pyelonephritis (XGP) represents a rare type of granulomatous inflammation characterized by unilateral enlargement of a kidney, hydronephrosis and replacement of renal parenchyma by cysts containing serosanguinous fluid, with resultant loss of normal renal function.

cholecystitis (XGC) is a benign, chronic inflammatory disease of the gallbladder.
The differential diagnosis of a mammary hibernoma includes nonneoplastic inflammatory or reactive processes such as fat necrosis and xanthogranulomatous
mastitis, other soft tissue tumors with lipomatous differentiation such as lipoblastomas, and some benign and malignant breast neoplasms such as granular cell tumor and histiocytoid carcinomas.
