Thank you for your query.

I would like to know the following:
1. Age and sex of the person whose report is mentioned.
2. Complaints.
3. Clinical findings.
The report shows that the gall bladder has a stone and may be distended due to infection as there is fluid around the gall baldder. Since the right lobe is shrunken the left lobe has grown in size to compensate for the working. This all has to be corealated clinically with the examination and other investigation findings.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing all the best.

Hi and welcome to HCM.
These live findings indicate liver fibrosis an the exact cause should be establushed. this is nothing significant but it can be start of fatty liver, cirhosis or viral hepatitis so rule these out. Stone in gallbladder may be reason for gallbaldder attack in future and it is indication for cholecystectomy so consider it with your suregon.
Wish you good health. Regards
