ABSTRACT: Twenty-one children with cholecystitis requiring surgical intervention were reviewed retrospectively. There were 13 males and 8 females. The age ranged from 2-13 years. Pain in abdomen was the commonest presentation. Ultrasound scan (USS) was the mainstay of diagnosis. Seven cases each of calculus cholecystitis, acalculous cholecystitis and cholecystitis with biliary tract disease were identified. Contrary to expectations, hemolytic disease was found only in one case of choledocholithiasis. Nineteen cases underwent surgery. E. coli was the most common pathogen grown on bile cultures from gall bladder. A diverse spectrum of benign biliary disease were encountered.
