Abstract

Omental Infarction from a Blunt Trauma in a Child- Should we Panic?

Sunny Modi,Matthew Pavicic

Omental Infarction (OI) is a rare cause of acute abdomen in children and often misdiagnosed as acute appendicitis due to itssimilar clinical presentation.Omental infarction is caused by rotation of the greater omentum on its long axis which may lead to tissue ischemia/infarction and necrosis. Of the 400 reported cases of OI, only 50 involved paediatric patients, with the majority presenting as right lower quadrant abdominal pain.
