Since I reported this case in December 1933, my attention has been called to the reports on paraduodenal hernia by Baumeister and Hanchett.1 They report only on right paraduodenal hernia and have found but forty-four cases of this particular type of internal hernia. One was the case which I am now reporting. I have been able to find no other case in the literature in which the obstruction in the hernia was due to a large gallstone.
REPORT OF CASE
Mrs. L. F., aged 70, white, was admitted to Norton Infirmary Jan. 29, 1933. Her present illness began seven days before admission to the hospital, immediately following a meal which had made her very sick. The symptoms began with vomiting accompanied by severe pain in the epigastric region which, however, subsided for a period of twenty-four hours, when she began to have intermittent cramps, pain and nausea.
