Abstract

Choleithiasis is increasingly diagnosed in childhood and infancy. Biliary parasites are the rarest cause of cholelithiasis in all age groups. We present a twelve-year-old girl with non-hemolytic gallbladder stone and discuss the clinical features and differential diagnosis of Dicrocoelium dendriticum (DD) invasion that causes and/or mimics cholelithiasis in children.
