Home » Intestinal Malrotation in Adolescent: A case report
Congenital malrotation of the mid-gut often presents within the first month of life.The overall incidence of malrotation, however, is unknown because some patients will present years later or remain asymptomatic for life. Because presentation is nonspecific and the index of suspicion for malrotation progressively decreases in the older population, the clinical diagnosis is usually not considered in the initial evaluation.
We hereby sought to present a case of a 14 year old girl came with history of right upper abdominal pain.
No history of fever or vomiting was noted. Ultrasound performed was inconclusive.
Patient was referred for CT scan of the abdomen.
