There are several types of acalculous cholecystitis, including biliary dyskinesia, chronic cholecystitis, and gallbladder motility disorder. However, these are the primary types of cholecystitis:
Biliary dyskinesia occurs when the gallbladder does not contract normally, and there is a delay in the emptying of bile into the small intestine. This can cause pain, nausea, vomiting, and other digestive symptoms.
Chronic acalculous cholecystitis is a chronic inflammation of the gallbladder that can occur without the presence of gallstones. Acalculous cholecystitis causes abdominal pain, fever, nausea, and vomiting.
Gallbladder motility disorder occurs when the muscles of the gallbladder do not contract and relax properly, causing the bile to accumulate in the gallbladder. This can lead to pain, nausea, vomiting, and other digestive symptoms.
