A 50-year-old woman with superior mesenteric arterial occlusion misdiagnosed as a psychiatric disorder: a case report

Bong Ju Lee, Ki Hoon Kim.

Abstract
We report a 50-year-old woman who was diagnosed with superior mesenteric arterial occlusion, following an initial diagnosis of undifferentiated somatoform disorder. Previous examination had shown no definite findings supporting superior mesenteric arterial occlusion; however, the progressive changes in her physical state and abdominal computed tomography helped confirm the diagnosis. Repeated observation and examinations also revealed that her symptoms resulted from physical problem rather than psychiatric ones.

Key words: Abdominal pain, superior mesenteric arterial occlusion, somatoform disorder.
