Gallbladder Adenocarcinoma and litiasis (2 of 13)
Gallbladder Adenocarcinoma and litiasis.
Gross appearance of gallblader carcinoma filling all the cavity and invading the wall.
Although uncommon, carcinoma of the gallbladder (GB) is
the most common primary hepatobiliary carcinoma, is the
fifth most common malignancy of the GI tract, and
predominantly affects older persons with long-standing
cholecystolithiasis. GB epithelial tumors tend to behave

preoperatively despite patients' symptoms. Early diagnosis
can improve the clinical outcome and cure rate of GB
