Thanks for writing to us.
Cholelithiasis refers to the formation of stones in the gall bladder. Most of the stones formed are cholesterol in nature. These are formed due to abnormal accumulation of bile salts in the gall bladder which get hardened later on to look like irregular calculi.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
