ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Schistosomiasis Japonicum

History: A 51-year-old woman presents with chronic left flank and pelvic pain. Her past medical history is remarkable for a remote liver biopsy. She reports prior travel to several Asian countries. Surgical history is notable for a prior cesarean section.

Findings: Abdominal radiography showed subtle curvilinear densities overlying in the left lower quadrant and central within the pelvis. This was confirmed on intravenous contrast-enhanced abdominopelvic CT to be the caused by thin mucosal surface calcifications within the descending and sigmoid colons. Incidental note is made of thin right hepatic lobe capsule calcifications.

Ddx: • Schistosomiasis Japonicum • Tuberculosis (TB) • Alkaline encrustation cystitis • Primary amyloidosis • Radiation

Dxhow: Liver Biopsy

Exam: The physical examination shows a nondistended abdomen and nonspecific lower abdominal pain and was otherwise noncontributory. Abdominal radiography and CT of the abdomen and pelvis were obtained.

No MeSH data available.
