The prevalence rate is difficult to work out because calculous disease is often asymptomatic. Cholelithiasis has become one among the foremost common diseases of the biliary tract. approximately 80 percent of gallstones contain cholesterol and therefore the remaining 20 percent are pigment stones, which consist mainly of calcium bilirubinate. Case Report: A 35-year male patient approached complaints of heaviness of abdomen, mild intermittent abdomen pain, nausea and with ultrasonography report which was suggestive of cholelithiasis of 4.7mm. Conclusion: The patient was diagnosed as Pittashmari and treated with ayurvedic medicine. With the help of Ayurvedic treatment protocol, the patient was free from 4.7mm cholelithiasis within 2 months of treatment and also improvement was observed in symptoms like the heaviness of the abdomen, pain in the abdomen, and nausea.
