Lastly, we discuss the key MR imaging findings of common genitourinary and gastrointestinal differential etiologies of RLQ
pain occurring in pregnancy.
adhesions involving the colon and abdominal wall were treated with electrosurgical cautery.
The differential clinical features of acute caecal volvulus in relation to other causes of intestinal obstruction showed more occurrence of right lower quadrant (RLQ
) pain, chronic intermittent pain relieved with passage of flatus and RLQ
16) In addition, the accuracy of clinical diagnosis for elderly patients and women of childbearing age with RLQ
pain tends to be lower than that of adult men.
The abdomen was distended, and further examination revealed hyperactive bowel sounds, rebound tenderness, and voluntary guarding at the RLQ
No organomegaly was identified upon abdominal palpation.
Trans abdominal sonography reported a dead fetus of 22 weeks gestational age, with reduced amniotic fluid and 2 masses in RUQ & RLQ
with air bubbles diagnostic of abscess formation.
She looked a little pale and had rebound tenderness and guarding in palpation of RLQ
On physical examination, the RLQ
pain should be approached gently so as not to exacerbate the patient's pain.
The diagnostic evaluation of RLQ
pain is challenging not just because of wide variety of causes, but also because the leading differential diagnoses are very much different depending on age and sex of the patient.
Her abdomen was soft and nondistended, deep tenderness to palpation in the RLQ
with vague rebound tenderness and muscle guarding.
4 Similarly, ultrasound is an established imaging tool not only for gynaecological diseases but it is also a useful modality for diagnosing non-gynaecological disorders that cause acute RLQ
The second 5-mm trocar serves as an accessory port for laparoscopic instruments and is inserted into the RLQ
