Abstract : Eosinophilic cholecystitis (EC) is an infrequent and poorly understood inflammatory condition of the gallbladder, first described in 1949 by Albot and colleagues as an inflammatory condition of the gallbladder in which the inflammatory infiltrate is composed predominately of eosinophils so that their presence clearly overshadows the presence of any other inflammatory cell components. EC has been reported alone or in combination with manifestations such as eosinophilic cholangitis, hypereosinophilic syndromes (HES), and parasitic infestations. Large numbers of eosinophils in the inflammatory infiltrate occurred three times more commonly in patients with acalculous cholecystitis than in patients with cholelithiasis.
