Core Tip Etiological diagnosis of gallbladder (GB) wall thickening can be challenging. Therefore, a thorough knowledge of the patterns and causes is crucial. Diffuse GB wall thickening is mostly related to inflammatory conditions intrinsic to the GB or extra-cholecystic causes. Focal GB wall thickening, on the other hand, presents a diagnostic challenge. An understanding of the imaging patterns of GB wall thickening including the degree of mural thickening, internal mural characteristics such as enhancement features, and relationship with adjacent structures including liver and bile ducts may point towards the likelihood of GB carcinoma. We present a concise review of the differential diagnoses of GB wall thickening on various imaging modalities. We also discuss the specific features that may aid to distinguish individual benign pathologies (chronic cholecystitis, xanthogranulomatous cholecystitis, and adenomyomatosis) from GB carcinoma. Finally, we suggest an approach to GB wall thickening and propose a reporting format.
