Wilson, W. Shepherd
MetadataShow full item record
The acute abdomen in the African is full of the unexpected, and any surgeon attacking the abdomen must be prepared for whatever he finds. This is especially difficult for the district government medical officers in the more isolated stations, where no ancillary services are at hand and no second opinion can be sought. The case reported here is one of torsion of a wandering spleen which was found lying in the right iliac fossa and pelvis adjacent to the uterus and right fallopian tube.
