They are found from one to hundreds or even thousands. In the literature describes the case when the gall bladder fit about 20 000 are very small stones (sand). What contributes to a rather complex process of stone formation? Chemical analysis has helped to establish that the gallstones are composed of three substances, which are always present in the bile in solution: from the fatty substance - cholesterol, bile pigment - bilirubin and less of the salts of lime. Gallstones occur only when due to various reasons chemicals are not held more bile in solution and precipitate in the form of tiny particles around which gradually "grow" the stones. During the inflammatory process die and fall off mucosal cells, which then accumulate cholesterol and other components of bile. In addition, the loss of bile cholesterol levels contribute to the infectious processes that destroy the so-called change agents.
