Can gallbladder stone causes jaundice?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Alan Cohen
38 years experience in Psychiatry
Gallstones: Yes. Blocking the bile duct , the stones cause a backup of bile coming out of the liver into the gallbladder. Excessive bile leaks into the blood stream and tissues, causing the yellow hue of jaundice. There are several ways it can happen. Stones are one way.
