Resumen

Pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis is a rare pathology with nonspecific symptoms that can be easily misdiagnosed. Clinical awareness along with close surveillance is critical to effectively diagnose and treat this condition. Current treatment is based on conservative therapy including antibiotics and oxygen. Surgery is only recommended when complications are suspected. Here, we present the case of a 72-year-old female admitted to the emergency department with abdominal pain and vomits. Pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis was diagnosed and was successfully treated. On follow-up visits, patient is recovering and doing well.
