  • A 85-year-old woman with nausea and vomiting presented to the emergency room.
  • The physical examination revealed a debilitated, cachectic, slightly lethargic woman. Although
    she had no abnormalities in the abdominal or inguinal regions, she had pain and paresthesia along
    the inner aspect of the thigh, down to the knee.

  • Her medical history included cholecystectomy.
  • An initial sonography examination gave non-specific findings.
  • Contrast-enhanced CT of the abdomen was performed.
