Pneumoperitoneum. Mid abdominal air and fluid collection. Medium ascites. Numerous smaller locules of air and fluid in the left upper quadrant. Some thickening of the jejunum in this location.
Traumatic perforation of the jejunum due to hard landing while skydiving. While it is not possible to confidently see the exact site of perforation, the left upper quadrant jejunum can be suspected given the number of smaller locules of air, which are slowly leaking from the site of perforation. This was confirmed with surgical exploration which involved resection of the injured loop of the jejunum and primary anastomosis.
