The relative incidence (i.e. hepatolithiasis cases against all cases with gallstone disease) in. the Western countries is approximately 1% whereas in Taiwan, South Korea, the People's Republic of China it has been reported to be 20%, 18% and 38-45% respectively. There are two types of hepatolithiasis and in East Asian countries one usually finds pigmented stone. The disease appears to be more common among people with low socio-economic status.
