Intestinal obstruction is the second among the most frequent acute abdominal conditions of the non-traumatic surgical pathologies. It is Found in 20% of patients admitted to the emergency care services with acute abdominal pain. It often results in high morbidity and mortality.
PRESENTATION OF CASE
We report a case of a foreign body resulting in a colon obstruction, concomitant with the diagnosis of a sigmoid cancer in a 47-year-old female.
There are only a few cases of Intestinal Obstruction Induced by Peach Stone in Stenosis of Sigmoid Colon by Adenocarcinoma reported in the world literature. Due to late diagnosis It has a high mortality rate. Vomiting and emesis, abdominal distention, dysphagia, colicky abdominal pain, failure to pass flatus and anorexia are clinical findings. The immediate treatment is importance for patient survival.
Intestinal obstructions and perforations are rare conditions caused by the ingestion of foreign bodies. These conditions must be taken into consideration especially owing to differing diagnoses and previous pathologies concomitant with the ingestion of objects such as those described in the foregoing adenocarcinoma case.
