Surprise, surprise, surprise! After 2 months of GI foreign bodies on ultrasound, take a look at this foreign body that was not in the stomach and this is no April fools trick.
Sonogram (Pancreas): Gunner (Name changed to protect the innocent :)
History: A 3-year-old, NM Pointer cross was presented for vomiting/diarrhea. Endoscopy of the stomach and duodenum was within normal limits. Blood work was unremarkable and palpation of the cranial abdomen revealed some discomfort.
Clinical Differential Diagnosis (Lobetti):
GIT – non-specific gastro-enteritis (viral, bacterial, helminths, protozoa, dietary indiscretion, toxins), dietary hypersensitivity, IBD, foreign body, emerging lymphoma
Pancreas – pancreatitis, abscess
Sonographic Interpretation (Lindquist):
The gastrointestinal tract presented relatively normal mucosa with an empty lumen.
