What is Gallbladder Fistula?

Description of the Disease

A gallbladder fistula is a pathological condition in which a fistula (passage) forms between the gallbladder and other organs (such as the intestine). This can happen due to various gallbladder diseases.


  • Gallbladder fistulas can be external or internal depending on which organs they connect to the gallbladder.


  • Pain in the right upper quadrant of the abdomen
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Jaundice
  • Pain when eating


A gallbladder fistula can occur due to gallstone disease, cholecystitis, trauma, or tumors.


Diagnosis of a gallbladder fistula may involve the use of ultrasound, CT scans, MRI, cholangiography, and other diagnostic methods.


Treatment of a gallbladder fistula may include conservative therapy, laparoscopic surgery, or open surgery depending on the severity of the disease.


Prevention of a gallbladder fistula includes maintaining a proper diet, avoiding excess weight, consuming fluids regularly, and seeking timely medical attention at the first signs of the disease.


Treatment of a gallbladder fistula is performed by a surgeon or gastroenterologist.
