Eosinophilic cholecystitis is a rare, poorly understood inflammatory condition of the gall bladder. It is characterized by transmural inflammation of the gallbladder wall in which more than 90% of the white cells are eosinophils. The etiology of eosinophilic cholecystitis remains obscure, although suggested causes include allergies, parasites, eosinophilic enteritis, and local reaction to gall stones. We report the case of a 66-year-old man who had eosinophilic cholecystitis associated with gall stones. (Korean J Med 76:467-470, 2009)
