A Sokwala, H Kamraan, A Abdallah

Abstract


Acalculous cholecystitis is an acute necro inflammatory disease of the gallbladder with multifactorial pathogenesis. Acute acalculous cholecystitis (AAC) typically occurs in critically ill or injured patients but has also been associated with various infectious agents. We report here a case of AAC in a patient with Plasmodium falciparum malaria.
