AbstractCholelithiasis remains one of the most common problems leading to surgical intervention. Over the past few decades several studies to determine the causes and risk factors of gall stone formation have been done. But some factors like Socioeconomic status, Alcohol intake, Smoking, Serum Cholesterol level, Family history, Total parenteral nutrition (TPN), Crohn’s disease are still considered controversial regarding the formation of gall stone. Therefore, this work has been done with a view to study its relation to the mentioned predisposing risk factors, So prophylactic plan like dietary improvement, change in life style (e.g. cessation of smoking & alcoholism) & others measures should be taken to avoid gallstone formation.
