Cholelithiasis is the medical term used for gall stones. Gallstones are formed due to condensation of digestive juice (bile) secreted by liver. These stones remain silent without causing any symptoms. When the stones obstruct the passage of bile juice, there will be symptoms of Cholelithiasis.
Gall bladder is a small organ adjoining the liver on the right upper quadrant of the abdomen. The main function of the gall bladder is storage and concentration of bile. The possibility of stones in the gall bladder can be due to the following pathologies:

2. Bilirubin: Bilirubin is a compound secreted by the liver for degeneration of the old RBC’s. In some cases, if the liver function is poor, bilirubin gets excessively secreted leading to hardening and stone formation. These are pigment stones that are dark brown or red in colour.
