Can viral infection cause gallbladder disease?

Sometimes. Or it may manifest after a viral illness. Takes gallstones about a year to develop.
Not likely. Typical gb disease is caused from precipitation of chemicals into stones. It is unlikely that a viral infection could change this chemical imbalance to make the precipitation more likely.

Usually other symptoms indicate infection like fever...
