Glossary for Gall bladder symptoms

Medical terms related to Gall bladder symptoms or mentioned in this section include:

  • Abdominal symptoms: Symptoms affecting the abdomen or digestive tract
  • Alpha thalassemia -- Hemoglobin H disease: Thalassemia is an inherited blood disorder characterized by abnormal synthesis of hemoglobin. Hemoglobin consists of two main protein chains called alpha and beta. Hemoglobin H disease involves defects in three of the four genes required to make each ? protein chain. The main symptom is moderate to severe anemia.
  • Bile Duct Cancer: A malignancy arising in the bile ducts of the liver
  • Biliary Colic: A condition which is characterized by the occurrence of colic due to the passage of gallstones along the biliary tract
  • Biliary cirrhosis: Biliary cirrhosis is a condition where the bile ducts are unable to transport bile effectively due to blockage, inflammation, scarring or some other damage to the bile ducts. The condition may result from such things as congenital defect of the bile ducts (e.g. biliary atresia), cystic fibrosis, gallstones or a variety of other secondary conditions. The cause of primary biliary cirrhosis is not fully understood.
  • Bladder conditions: Any condition affecting the bladder
  • Bladder symptoms: Symptoms related to the bladder and urination.
  • Caroli Disease: A rare disorder where the bile ducts inside the liver become enlarged resulting in infection, irritation and gallstone formation.
  • Cholangitis: bile duct inflammation (cholangitis)
  • Cholecystitis: inflammation of the gall bladder.
  • Cholelithiasis: gallstones (choleliths) are crystalline bodies formed within the body by accretion or concretion of normal or abnormal bile component.
  • Cholestasis, intrahepatic of pregnancy: A rare liver disorder (impaired flow of bile) that occurs during third trimester of pregnancy with symptoms usually disappearing after delivery.
  • Chromosome 10, trisomy 10p: A rare chromosomal disorder where there are three copies of the short arm (p) of chromosome 10 rather than the normal two resulting in various abnormalities. The type and severity of symptoms depend on the amount and location of genetic material duplicated.
  • Chromosome 10p duplication syndrome: A rare chromosomal disorder where there are three copies of the short arm (p) of chromosome 10 rather than the normal two resulting in various abnormalities. The type and severity of symptoms depend on the amount and location of genetic material duplicated.
  • Cirrhosis of liver: diffuse hepatic process characterized by fibrosis and the conversion of normal liver architecture into structurally abnormal nodules
  • Clonorchiasis: Infection with the Chinese liver fluke called Clonchorchis sinensis. Infection usually results from ingesting contaminated fish and crayfish. The infection primarily affects the liver as the flukes tend to occupy the biliary ducts of the liver. Recurring infections can cause more severe symptoms. Infection with this fluke is endemic in Asia but can occur occasionally in countries such as the US though the source of contamination is food from Asia.
  • Crohn's disease: Crohn's disease causes inflammation of the digestive system. It is one of a group of diseases called inflammatory bowel disease. The disease can affect any area from the mouth to the anus. It often affects the lower part of the small intestine called the ileum.
  • Digestive symptoms: Any symptoms affecting the digestive tract.
  • Duplication 10p: A rare chromosomal disorder where there are three copies of the short arm (p) of chromosome 10 rather than the normal two resulting in various abnormalities. The type and severity of symptoms depend on the amount and location of genetic material duplicated.
  • Edwardsiella tarda infection: A type of bacterial infection. The bacterium (Edwardsiella tarda) infects freshwater-dwelling animals and transmission occurs through consuming infected animals or contact with contaminated water. Symptoms are determined by the location of the infection. Healthy people are often able to fight of the infection but those with an underlying illness or poor immune systems may be more susceptible.
  • Erythropoietic Protoporphyria: A condition where there is excessive formation of porphyrin or its precursor
  • Familial hyperlipoproteinemia: A group of genetic disorder characterized by abnormal breakdown of lipoproteins which causes abnormal lipoprotein and lipid levels in the blood. There are various types of this condition: hyperlipoproteinemia type I, II, III, IV and V. The type and severity of symptoms vary between types. The disorder tends to run in families (familial).
  • Gall Bladder Cancer: Cancer of the gall bladder.
  • Gall bladder conditions: Any condition that affects the gallbladder
  • Gall bladder deformity: Malformation of distortion in the normal appearance of the gallbladder either congenital or acquired.
  • Gallbladder inflammation: Inflammation the gallbladder which is a small sac-like organ located in the upper right side of the abdomen, just below the liver.
  • Gallstones: A condition where biliary calculi form in the gallbladder
  • Hereditary elliptocytosis: An inherited blood disorder where a significant number of red blood cells (erythrocytes) are elliptical or oval shaped rather than doughnut shaped. The condition is often asymptomatic but anemia can result when the abnormal red blood cells are destroyed.
  • Hereditary spherocytosis: A rare genetic condition characterized by a defect of the red blood cell membrane. It is characterized by abnormally-shaped red blood cells which are spherical rather than doughnut-shaped. The abnormal red blood cells are broken down by the spleen sooner than normal which leads to problems such as anemia. There are various subtypes of the disorder which are distinguished by the origin of the underlying genetic defect.
  • High sphincter of oddi manometry: The use of a water perfused pressure catheter which calculates that the sphincter of oddi pressures are raised
  • Hydatid cyst: It is rare for hydatid disease to be encountered primarily in the urogenital system or retroperitoneum. Moreover, prostatic involvement is extremely rare.
  • Hyperlipoproteinemia type 3: A rare genetic disorder characterized by the body's impaired ability to break down certain lipids (triglycerides) which results in their buildup in the blood.
  • Liver cancer: The occurrence of malignancy that occurs in the liver
  • Liver symptoms: Symptoms affecting the liver
  • Lymphoma: Any neoplastic disorder that occurs in lymphoid tissue
  • Obstruction of common bile duct: maybe due to extrinsic or intrinsic factors
  • Opisthorchiasis: Infection with a type of fluke (Southeast Asian liver fluke or cat liver fluke). Infection usually occurs by consuming infected undercooked fish. Acute infection may cause fever, joint pain, rash, eosinophilia and lymphadenopathy where as chronic infections may cause enlarged liver, malnutrition. Mild cases can cause constipation, diarrhea and abdominal pain. Occasionally, the infection may be asymptomatic and in the other extreme, severe cases may result in complications such as cholangiocarcinoma.

  • Pyruvate Kinase Deficiency: A rare inherited blood disorder involving a deficiency of the enzyme pyruvate kinase.
  • Pyruvate kinase deficiency, hemolytic anemia: A rare inherited blood disorder where the deficiency of an enzyme (pyruvate kinase) needed by red blood cells causes them to be destroyed prematurely and hence anemia occurs.
  • Sclerosing Cholangitis: Chronic hereditary disease causing inflammation and destruction of the bile ducts in and around the liver with subsequent blockage to bile flow
  • Secondary Biliary Cirrhosis: Secondary biliary cirrhosis is a condition where the bile ducts are unable to transport bile effectively due to a secondary cause which results in blockage, inflammation, scarring or some other damage to the bile ducts.
