SS (s-406) is a 61-year-old Indonesian. Sometime in 2011, he had to be hospitalized. Something was wrong. Fluid accumulated in his abdomen and this had to be tapped out. In 2012, he landed in the hospital again, twice. In February 2013, he again had to go into the hospital to have fluid tapped out of his abdomen.
In July 2013, SS came to seek our help. Since then, he need not go to the hospital anymore!
What was wrong with SS?
An utrasound on 16 May 2013 showed a 8.9 x 6.6 cm mass in his pancreas. And he had fatty liver.
A follow-up CT scan the next day showed liver cirrhosis with:
- ascites (accumulation of fluid –usually serous fluid which is a pale yellow and clear fluid — in the abdominal (peritoneal) cavity. Ascitic fluid can have many sources such asliver disease, cancers, congestive heart failure, or kidney failure).
- cholecystitis (inflammation of the gallbladder).
- cholangitis (infection of the biliary tract with the potential to cause significant morbidity and mortality), and
- pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas).
The report said: tidak terlihat nodul /massa atau lesi fokal (no nodule or mass seen).
So, how can we make out of this case with two conflicting imaging reports?
SS was prescribed herbs for his liver and pancreas and was told to keep to a healthy diet.
