Abstract

Xanthogranulomatous cholecystitis is a rare histopathological finding and accounts for 1.3% to 5.2% of cases. It closely resembles gallbladder cancer because of its extensive inflammation and involvement of the surrounding organs. We are reporting a case where it presents as an extensive inflammatory mass mimicking gallbladder cancer.
