ABSTRACT
The article presents a quiz related to the diagnosis of a case study of a 75 year old woman was admitted to Elche University General Hospital for further evaluation of nausea and vomiting related to meals for one month. She had previously been well with no history of liver disease, dysphagia, or peptic ulcer. On routine physical examination an abdominal mass was discovered in the right upper quadrant and epigastrium. Results of laboratory studies and liver function tests were normal. Also, she had never been abroad and had no contact with livestock. Upper endoscopy showed extrinsic compression of the gastric lesser curve. A helical computed tomography scan was therefore done.
