(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.
A right hypochondriac mass may be more common in Xanthogranulomatous Cholecystitis
than in acute cholecystitis, mimicking carcinoma of the gallbladder.
Cholesterolosis, xanthogranulomatous cholecystitis
, benign polyps, pre-malignant and malignant conditions are the less common pathological entities6.

Pseudoaneurysm of the Cystic Artery Associated with Xanthogranulomatous Cholecystitis
A review of 40 cases of xanthogranulomatous cholecystitis
suggests that the process in the gallbladder stems from an obstruction of the Rokitansky-Aschoff sinuses by inspissated bile followed by subsequent rupture and a xanthogranulomatous reaction.
is an atypical form of chronic cholecystitis characterised by infiltration of plasma cells, lipid laden histiocytes, proliferation of fibroblasts in the gall bladder wall.

Variants of chronic cholecystitis--Follicular cholecystitis, Eosinophilic cholecystitis, Xanthogranulomatous cholecystitis
is a rare inflammatory disease of the gallbladder characterized by a focal or diffuse destructive inflammatory process with accumulation of lipid laden macrophages (Foam cells), fibrous tissue and acute and chronic inflammatory cells.
There is one conversion to open cholecystectomy because of acute xanthogranulomatous cholecystitis
