Low-Phospholipid Associated Cholelithiasis Report


Low-Phospholipid Associated Cholelithiasis

LPAC is a particular form of biliary lithiasis, in which there is not an excess of cholesterol secretion into bile, but decreased concentrations of phosphatidylcholine, responsible for the formation of stones in the gallbladder and liver. The subjects most at risk are female with a positive family history for gallstones. It manifests itself with intense and intermittent pain in the liver, due to the presence and displacement of the gallstones, even after a long period without symptoms. Genetics plays a key role in the onset of this syndrome, with the ABCB4 and ABCB11 genes at the forefront
