Abstract

Purpose: Gallbladder dyskinesia (GD) is a well-established disorder in adults, but it is not clearly defined in the paediatric population. Therefore, the aim of this study was to review our experience in a group of children with chronic abdominal pain associated with impaired gallbladder emptying in the absence of cholelithiasis.
