At improper feeding, stagnation of bile, disbolism, at inflammation in the bile-excreting duct system - the water share in bile decreases, the amount of cholesterol increases, and it drops out in the deposit. If the process proceeds, parts are enlarged and integrate, forming the different size "stones".
