Pneumatosis intestinalis: Ischemia vs non-ischemia
Dr. MS Jaslyn Devakirubai and Dr. N Murali
Pneumatosis intestinal is a common radiographic finding in Ischemic and Non-Ischemic bowel pathology. It is often a sign of the serious underlying illness and is associated with a poor prognosis. A case of pneumatosis intestinalis with mesenteric ischemia and rare association with abdominal tuberculosis in a young adult is presented here. In the setting of an acute abdomen, rapid evaluation is necessary to identify intraabdominal processes that require emergent surgical intervention.
