Abstract

Cholelithiasis in paediatrics is a pathology that has a low incidence. Diagnosis is usually made by chance as it is mostly asymptomatic. Chest pain as presenting symptom is rare. The most commonly used diagnostic method is abdominal ultrasound due to its high specificity and sensitivity. Treatment depends on the characteristics of the patient, and both medical and surgical options may be considered.
