Cholangitis vs Cholecystitis: Key Differences

Cholangitis is inflammation of bile ducts, often due to bacterial infection and obstruction, causing symptoms like fever, jaundice, and abdominal pain. Treatment involves antibiotics and procedures to relieve obstructions. Cholecystitis is inflammation of the gallbladder, commonly caused by gallstones, presenting symptoms such as severe abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting. Treatment may include antibiotics, fasting, and surgical removal of the gallbladder if necessary.
