An 8 years old child have a solitary gall stone needs evaluation for the causes Rule out haemolytic anaemia like sickle cell disease and hereditary spherocytosis . Once causes have been ruled out - she needs a laparoscopic cholecystectomy.as medical treatment like UDCA is not recommended in children

The usual treatment for gallstones is surgery to remove the gallbladder. Doctors sometimes can use nonsurgical treatments to treat cholesterol stones, but pigment stones usually require surgery.

Thank you doctor
