Porcelain gall bladder is a rare entity and a morphological variant of chronic cholecystitis. Dystrophic calcification along with inflammatory scarring of the wall gives the porcelain nature to the gall bladder. Patients are mostly asymptomatic and incidentally diagnosed on X-ray, ultrasound or CT abdomen. In the early stages they can be a surprise as only a histopathological diagnosis. Prophylactic cholecystectomy is recommended in view of high risk of malignancy.doi:10.18203/2349-2902.isj20181624 fatcat:mn6r5j2trbeevixyfels6336uq
