Gallbladder sludge in children with sickle cell disease


Journal Article

Ultrasonographic records of 75 children with sickle cell disease and hepatobiliary symptoms were reviewed. Seventeen had gallbladder sludge, nine with concurrent stones and eight with sludge alone. Because all the children eventually had gallstones, we recommend that elective cholecystectomy be performed on patients with gallbladder sludge. © 1994 Mosby-Year Book, Inc.
