Acute cholecystitis associated with Clonorchis sinensis infection.

Oh JT, Kang DB, Jo HJ - Ann Surg Treat Res (2014)

Bottom Line: Clonorchis sinensis is one of the most common causes of trematodiasis that is caused by the ingestion of raw fish contaminated with infective cysts.The adult flukes are predominantly present in the intrahepatic bile ducts, but occasionally they may be found in the pancreatic duct and extrahepatic bile ducts.The clinical manifestations depend on the number of flukes, the period of infestation, and complications such as pericholangitic abscess, cholangitis, bile duct stones, and cholangiocarcinoma.

ABSTRACT
Clonorchis sinensis is one of the most common causes of trematodiasis that is caused by the ingestion of raw fish contaminated with infective cysts. The adult flukes are predominantly present in the intrahepatic bile ducts, but occasionally they may be found in the pancreatic duct and extrahepatic bile ducts. The clinical manifestations depend on the number of flukes, the period of infestation, and complications such as pericholangitic abscess, cholangitis, bile duct stones, and cholangiocarcinoma. However, primary acute cholecystitis associated with C. sinensis infection is extremely rare. Herein, we report on a case of primary acute cholecystitis associated with C. sinensis infection.

Axial unenhanced (A) and contrast-enhanced abdominal computed tomography images (B) show a distended gallbladder with wall thickening and pericholecystic fluid collection. It also shows minimal dilatation of the peripheral intrahepatic bile ducts.

Figure 1: Axial unenhanced (A) and contrast-enhanced abdominal computed tomography images (B) show a distended gallbladder with wall thickening and pericholecystic fluid collection. It also shows minimal dilatation of the peripheral intrahepatic bile ducts.

Mentions: Abdominal CT showed a distended gallbladder, wall thickening, and pericholecystic fluid collection with mild dilatation of the extrahepatic bile duct (Fig. 1). MR cholangiography showed a distended gallbladder, pericholecystic fluid collection, and mild extrahepatic bile duct dilation without obstructive lesion (Fig. 2).
