fig0005: Plain abdominal radiograph. Two dilated loops of small bowel are seen (arrow).

Mentions: A 72 year old female presented with a 24-h history of sharp, localised right iliac fossa pain. The patient denied nausea and vomiting, altered bowel habit, anorexia, weight loss or urinary symptoms. There was no significant prior medical, gynaecological or surgical history of note. She was heamodynamically stable and apyrexial. Clinical examination confirmed localised peritonism in the right iliac fossa with no other evidence of abdominal distension, hernias, masses or organomegaly. Per rectal and urine examination were normal. Plain abdominal X-rays showed two small loops of mildly dilated small bowel but no overt obstruction (Fig. 1).
