A case of afferent loop obstruction secondary to recurrent carcinoma of the stomach with ultrasound and C.T. scan findings

A case of afferent loop obstruction secondary to recurrent carcinoma of the stomach with ultrasound and C.T. scan findings

American Journal of Gastroenterology 68(1): 77-80

A case of afferent loop obstruction secondary to recurrent carcinoma of the stomach is reported. The patient presented in the early recurrence period with the clinical picture similar to that of pancreatic pseudocyst. This was the first reported case of afferent loop obstruction demonstrated by abdominal ultrasound and C.T. scan. The radiological distinguishing features and similarities of pancreatic pseudocyst and afferent loop obstruction are discussed. This case also shows a rarely reported manifestation of recurrent carcinoma of the stomach.
