Hematology eval?: Gallstones in a 4 year-old are uncommon, but when they do occur, it is often not due to cholesterol stone like in adults. They may be pigment stones that result from abnormal breakdown of red blood cells. Hereditary spherocytosis and other disorders can do this and consult by a hematologist may help, as could a pediatric gastroenterologist/hepatologist.
