Abstract

Pneumoperitoneum poses an important diagnostic sign determining the urgency of management of patients in an emergency department. Chilaiditi sign is a rare radiologic finding of large intestines transposition between the diaphragm and the liver. If the patient becomes symptomatic, then the condition is called Chilaiditi syndrome. We present a rare case of a 49-year-old Egyptian man who presented to our emergency department complaining of cough and vague abdominal discomfort who was found to have Chilaiditi syndrome diagnosed radiologically by computed tomography scan. He was conservatively managed rather than undergoing invasive non-warranted diagnostic and therapeutic testing that may have resulted in increased morbidity. A review of the current literature on Chilaiditi syndrome is provided with a focus on increasing the familiarity of health care professionals with the conditions and stressing the importance of a physical examination in evaluating patients with what appears to be air under the diaphragm.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 26 September 2018.
All research outputs
#10,601,012
of 17,039,068 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Medical Case Reports
#877
of 2,807 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#161,079
of 282,719 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Medical Case Reports
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 17,039,068 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 35th percentile – i.e., 35% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,807 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.1. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 65% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 282,719 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 39th percentile – i.e., 39% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
