Cholecystitis, pronounced as ko-luh-sis-TIE-tis, refers to the inflammation characterized by redness and swelling of the gallbladder. This condition arises when the flow of a digestive fluid known as bile becomes obstructed within the gallbladder.
The gallbladder, a small organ situated beneath the liver, primarily functions as a reservoir for the bile produced by the liver. In the typical course, bile is released from the gallbladder and flows into the small intestine. However, when there is an impediment in this flow, bile accumulates within the gallbladder, resulting in inflammation and the potential for infection.
Cholecystitis can manifest suddenly in an acute form or persist as a chronic condition over an extended period.
