Not all diverticulitis are colonic: small bowel diverticulitis, a systematic review.

CONCLUSIONS: Diagnosis of SBNMD is often made at emergency surgical exploration with high morbidity and mortality rate. SBNMD must be considered in elderly patients presenting with abdominal pain. Multidisciplinary approach to patient (radiologist, surgeon, gastroenterologist) is necessary to make early diagnosis. In case of complicated SBNMD, emergency surgeon has to choose the right surgical treatment, if necessary. PMID: 29795067 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We reported a case of a 70-year-old female who presented to our Emergency Department (ED) with right upper quadrant pain and an initial clinical suspicion of cholecystitis. Ultrasound (US) and Computed Tomography (CT) demonstrated an anatomical variation of the sigmoid colon diverticulitis. This clinical report demonstrates that ultrasound plays a relevant part as first-step approach to the acute abdominal conditions and its accuracy increases together with other diagnostic tools such as Computer Tomography.

We report a 9-year-old boy who presented with acute onset of periumbilical pain and nonbilious vomiting. His clinical and laboratory parameters were unremarkable, except for serum amylase levels. He was conservatively managed initially as acute pancreatitis with paralytic ileus. However, the child deteriorated in a course of 2 days with bilious vomiting, abdominal distension, and dehydration. Imaging was suggestive of an ileoileal intussusception, and exploratory laparotomy identified Meckel's diverticulum as the lead point for the intussusception. The histopathological examination revealed inflamed heterotopic pancrea...
