Some studies suggest cholecystectomy and the cholelithiasic disease are frequently associated to some neoplasms of the digestive tract. Cholecystectomy, through the physiopathologic alterations it causes, seems to assume the role of factor of risk for the development of a gastric neoplasm. The authors reviewed their casuistry by analysing the percentages of subjects in whom the gastric neoplasm was associated to a previous cholecystectomy or a concomitant cholelithiasis. The data obtained do not support the hypothesis that cholecystectomy or the "lithogenicity of the biliary ducts" may be a factor of risk for gastric cancer.
