Stones in the gallbladder. Clinical specimen of the liver and its gallbladder (centre left, dark brown) in a case of gallstones (cholelithiasis). The gallbladder stores bile, the digestive fluid produced by the liver. Gallstone formation occurs when gallstones, hard deposits formed of cholesterol and bile salts, form from an imbalance in the composition of the bile. Gallstones are usually symptomless, unless one obstructs the bile duct, causing acute pain, jaundice and infection. Treatment is with drugs to dissolve the gallstones, or surgical removal of the gallbladder.
