A Large Refilling Cystic Lesion In A Gastric Bypass Patient.

Tewari V, Tewari D, Antunez D, Iqbal S, Williams S - ACG Case Rep J (2015)

Bottom Line: We describe a patient with a history of gastric bypass and chronic alcoholism suffering from a rare Peterson's hernia resulting from her surgery.There are a few case reports in which afferent loop obstruction was misdiagnosed as pancreatic pseudocyst after Billroth II gastrectomy.Ours is the first in which Peterson's hernia was initially misdiagnosed as a pancreatic pseudocyst in a gastric bypass patient.

There are a few case reports in which afferent loop obstruction was misdiagnosed as pancreatic pseudocyst after Billroth II gastrectomy. Ours is the first in which Peterson's hernia was initially misdiagnosed as a pancreatic pseudocyst in a gastric bypass patient.

Figure 2: Temoprary resolution of cyst collection with transcuatneous catheter drainage.

Mentions: At a facility with bariatric surgery experience, a fresh review of the prior CT identified the cystic lesion as a distended, excluded gastroduodenal limb with intestinal obstruction. An exploratory laparotomy showed that the biliopancreatic limb was chronically incarcerated through the Petersen's space. Resection and re-anastomosis was performed and a gastrostomy tube was placed. She had an unremarkable recovery and the gastrostomy tube was removed after 4 days (Figure 2).
