Methodology: Two thousand nine hundred fifty-nine (n=2959) gallbladder specimens with a clinical diagnosis of cholelithiasis and cholecystitis were analyzed. The clinical history of patients was taken from computer storage data.

Results: Out of the total 2959 cases, on histopathological examination, chronic cholecystitis was the commonest finding (1990, 67.25%), followed by acute cholecystitis 410(13.85%) cholesterolosis (396,13.38%) and gallbladder carcinoma 42(1.42%). Out of 42 cases of gallbladder carcinoma, 34(80.95%) were female and 8(19%) were male. Most cases were post-menopausal age group 21(61.76%) compared to premenopausal 13(38.23%).
