Gastric abscess--an unusual presentation. Case report.

Abstract

Gastric abscess is a rare inflammatory condition of the gastric wall. It is seldom diagnosed preoperatively because of the variety of clinical presentations mimicking the more common conditions. We report a case of a gastric abscess thought preoperatively to be a strangulated epigastric hernia. This prompted early and appropriate surgery.
