Inflammatory Large Omental Pseudo-cyst: Case Report
Background: The inflammatory omental pseudo-cysts are very rare and there are few reports on this subject especially when it occurs after traumatism. The objective of this article is to present a case and the management options and immediate results.
Clinical Case: We present a case of a 47- years-old patient with abdominal pain, lack of appetite, nausea, diarrheas since 3 weeks. He was diagnosed with a large pseudo-inflammatory cyst treated initially by percutaneous radiological drainage with initial and short-term success and in a second time resection by laparoscopic approach.
Conclusions: The echography is the first-intention exam but the CTscan allows a better characterisation of the lesion and the relation with the other abdominal organs. The surgical treatment proved to be the most reliable attitude despite the initial conservative attitude
