Objective: To study the predilection of ABO blood group in cholecystitis.
Methods: 50 patients of ultrasonography proven Cholecystitis were confirmed on operation. The ABO grouping and Rh typing of all the patients were done by standard agglutination technique and results were analysed.
Results: Cholecystitis is more common in female (74%) and age group of 41-50 yrs. has the maximum number of patients. Patients with blood group ‘O’ has maximum number (56%), followed by blood group ‘B’ (24%).
Conclusion: Patients with blood group ‘O’ has maximum number in our study. As the number of the patients in our study is too less, it cannot be concluded that blood group ‘O’ is a risk factor for Cholecystitis.
