The management of cholelithiasis is usually straightforward, but there are a few special situations and questions which arise repeatedly. This paper deals with management of patients with asymptomatic stones, diabetic patients with stones, the relationships between stones and cancer, and patients without stones but who have typical pain. It also considers certain surgical topics of interest to primary care specialists, including that of safety of laparoscopic surgery, pain after surgery, and the role of incidental cholecystectomy.
