If the gall bladder is truely infected, this can be seen on a CT scan, you would be started on IV antibiotics and a laproscopic possible open surgery would need to be performed to remove the gallbladder. After surgery depending on how infected the gallbladder was you may continue to receive several more IV antibiotics.

Gall bladder infections are generally treated with antibiotics. The course of the treatment usually depends on the severity of the infection and if the infection has gone into the blood stream. This is called sepsis. Most gall bladder infections if caught early enough will respond to antibiotics.
