RADIOLOGY: ABDOMEN: Case# 33067: MALROTATION WITH PARTIAL VOLVULUS. 20 year old female status post C-section with probable wound infection. She has been previously debrided in the past. 1) The open anterior abdominal wound in the region of the previous C-section has some surrounding soft tissue inflammatory changes in the fat but no evidence of a focal fluid collection to suggest abscess. 2) There are findings consistent with malrotation. The enlarged venous structures converging into the superior mesenteric vein as well as the high attenuation of possible extraluminal fluid are worrisome for mid gut volvulus. Clinical correlation is need.
