Results: Chronic cholecystitis with 110 cases (73.3%) accounted for the majority. About the variable body mass index, 9 patients of the case group (6%) and 15 patients of the control group (7.5%) had a body mass index greater than 30 kg per square meter (morbid obesity), but the association was not statistically significant (P=0.784). After examining LDL and HDL, there was no significant difference in LDL/HDL ratio with type of disease of case group.
