Leukaemic Infiltration of the Gallbladder Wall in a Paediatric Patient with Imaging Features of Acute Cholecystitis

WP Chu


Abstract

Computed tomography findings of diffuse gallbladder wall thickening and pericholecystic soft tissue strandings are often present in acute cholecystitis. However, they are nonspecific. A paediatric patient suffered from leukaemic infiltration of the gallbladder, which was mimicked by acute acalculous cholecystitis both clinically and radiologically.
