Abstract

A 62-year-old patient presented with flatulence, abdominal distension and other symptoms of ileus. Roentgenographic finding found compression on duodenum. Blood pool scintigraphy ( 99m Tc erythrocytes) showed aortal aneurysm, while simultaneous gastric emptying study with liquid meal ( 99m Tc-S-colloid) showed dislocation of duodenum and compression from abdominal aortal aneurysm.
