ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: superior mesenteric artery syndrome

History: Patient is a 2 month-old male, full-term infant, with severe malnutrition and failure to thrive, admitted to the intensive care unit, with long term feeding difficulties. The study was performed initially to rule out malrotation.

Findings: Spot images from an upper GI series demonstrate abrupt caliber change at the junction of the second and the third portion of the duodenum, with the second portion markedly dilated. There is a rather prominent tubular impression at this transition point, which is the impression made by the superior mesenteric artery. Note that the ligament of Treitz is in its normal location, ruling out malrotation.

Ddx: superior mesenteric artery syndrome

Exam: N/C

No MeSH data available.
