Watch out for wishbones

When a woman presented to doctors with left-sided abdominal pain, they mistakenly diagnosed her with diverticulitis, until a colonoscopy revealed a lucky break.

The 75-year-old presented to a clinic in Serbia with a seven-day history of nausea, left iliac fossa pain and a mild fever.

Laboratory testing revealed the patient also had an elevated CRP level and leukocytosis.

Abdominal X-ray showed bowel distention, as well as one significant air–fluid level — luckily without pneumoperitoneum.
