Bile Cultures for aerobic and anaerobic bacteria were carried out on 125 samples from patients with chronic cholecystitis with cholelithiasis. Cultures grew 71(56.8%) aerobes and 17(13.6%) anaerobic microorganisms. Polymicrobial infection was seen in 7(16.2%) cases. E. coli (45.07%) and Klebsiella (25.35%) were predominant among the aerobes and Bacteroides fragilis (58.82%) was predominant among the anaerobes. Highest incidence of the disease was observed in the fourth decade of life and females predominated in this study.
