Perforated duodenal ulcer with abcesses formation

Case contributed by Dr Ammar Haouimi


Known history of peptic ulcer disease.

Patient Data

Age: 65 years
Gender: Male

There is a retrogastric fluid collection (6x4 cm) with peripheral enhancement, and perilesional fat stranding, communicating with the duodenal bulb through a fistulous tract. This fluid collection seems to be in continuity with another small fluid collection (2x1.7 cm).

Case Discussion

The clinical history and CT features are highly suggestive of a perforated duodenal ulcer with abscesses formation.
