Resumen

DIAZ PLASENCIA, Juan et al. Cuerpo extraño en abdomen: a propósito de un caso. Rev. gastroenterol. Perú [online]. 2001, vol.21, n.3, pp.229-233. ISSN 1022-5129.

The case of a 51 year-old female patient, who underwent cholecystectomy four years ago is presented. She approached the surgical department at the Hospital Belen of Trujillo-Peru, suffering of abdominal pain for the past four months and with the presence of a mass located in the epigastrium and occupying part of the right hypochondrium. A thoracic x-ray showed a left pleural effusion, and an abdominal echography compatible with a pseudopancreatic-cyst. An exploratory laparatomy was performed and a 15x9 cm mass was found in the sub-hepatic area. This mass had a semisolid consistency with a rounded shape and multiple adherences to the upper omentum and the liver. In the macroscopic exam, after the dissection of the cyst, a 25x42 cm gauze was found inside the mass which was full of biliary fluid. Due to the unspecific clinical and image diagnosis it was decided to carry out a review of this topic which is suspected of being under-recorded in this country.
