ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Pseudomyxoma Peritonei

History: 28 y.o. woman with onset of crampy abdominal pain.

Findings: An acute abdominal series suggest early small bowel obstruction, with a dilated loop of small bowel and paucity of large bowel gas. The abdomen is protuberant, with centralization of bowel loops suggesting ascites. This is best demonstrated on follow up CT Scanogram obtained at a latter date. CT images demonstrate ascites that causes mass effect on abdominal viscera, demostrated by scalloping of the liver margins.
