Abstract

Presentation of Case A 27-year-old woman was admitted to the hospital because of portal-vein thrombosis and an epigastric mass. The patient was well until 10 days earlier, when moderately severe epigastric pain developed; she was able to continue her work, and the pain diminished during the day. On the following day, after she drank milk, the pain became constant and very severe and radiated around to the back in a band-like fashion; nausea and vomiting occurred. She was admitted to another hospital, where evaluation revealed a normal amylase level. An x-ray film of the abdomen was reported to show calcification. . .
