We previously reported a case of a human gallbladder with cholelithiasis consisting of intestinal metaplasia with the expression of caudal-related homeobox transcription factor (Cdx2). However, it is unclear how often intestinal metaplasia and Cdx2 expression occur in human, nontumorous gallbladders with cholelithiasis. We studied the incidence of intestinal metaplasia and Cdx2 expression in human gallbladders with cholelithiasis. Gallbladders were resected under laparoscopy from 103 patients… CONTINUE READING
