Abstract
Gastric wall abscess is a one form of phlegmonous gastritis and there are scare reports on this. Gastric wall abscess is a purulent inflammatory disease and it is commonly caused by a focal injury to the gastric mucosa such as a penetrating trauma from an ingested foreign body or an endoscopic biopsy where by bacterial infection occurs throughout all the layers of the gastric wall. With symptoms such as abdominal pain and fever, making the diagnosis after an operation was possible in the past, but it has recently become possible to make the diagnosis before the operation via esophagogastroduodenoscopy, endoscopic ultrasonography and/or abdominal computed tomography. We recently experienced a case of gastric wall abscess that was associated with a foreign body (presumably a fish bone) in a healthy middle aged woman. By performing generalized esophagogastroduodenoscopy and abdominal computed tomography at a primary medical institution, we made an early diagnosis and treated the patient. Herein, we report on this case and we review the relevant literature.
