Diverticular perforation masquerading as maxillary sinusitis.
Emerg Radiol. 2006 Nov; 13(2):83-5.ER

Abstract

Although diverticular perforation and diverticulitis is usually a straightforward diagnosis, an occasional case can be difficult. In this report, we describe a patient who initially presented with symptoms suggestive of maxillary sinusitis and hip fracture. Findings of subcutaneous craniofacial emphysema eventually led to the diagnosis of a perforated sigmoid diverticulum with abscess.
