Abstract

This report summarizes the proceedings of the first National Institutes of Health - International Workshop on Pigment Gallstone Disease. The meeting held at the Univeristy of Pennsylvania in May, 1981 consisted of eight sessions in which the following aspects of pigment gallstone disease were discussed: (a) classification; (b) epidemiology; (c) radiographic assessment; (d) gallstone composition; (e) composition of bile; (f) pathogenesis; (g) animal models, genetics, and computer analysis, and (h) medical treatment. The interaction of participants interested in various aspects of pigment stone disease was stimulating. This workshop should be a major stimulus for future studies in this relatively neglected, but important area of biliary tract lithiasis.
