Causes of gallbladder eruption
Lacerations are generally caused by cholecystitis or acute injury.
Causes of cholecystitis leading to a rupture include:
1- Gallstones, which are the most common cause of inflammation.
2- ascariasis, which is caused by parasitic worms and can lead to biliary tract disease.
3- Bacterial infections, such as those caused by coli, Klebsiella, or Streptococcus faeces.
4- Bile sludge, which is a mixture of bile and particles that can clog the gallbladder.
Causes of a non-acute injury that can rupture the gallbladder include:
1- Car accidents.
2- Direct hits from contact sports, such as football, wrestling or rugby.
