Diafragmatic injury presents acutely and be associated with other life threatening injury of other organs. Sudden increase in abdominal pressure may cause injury in the membranous or muscular part of the diaphragm. While isolated diaphragmatic rupture after blunt trauma is rarely seen, its diagnosis can be overlooked frequently. Early diagnosis is the most important step in the treatment. Cases with delayed diagnosis can result in a diaphragmatic hernia with high mortality and morbidity rates due to complications such as strangulation and incarceration. The most critical point during the diagnosis is the suspicion for clinical diaphragm injury. X-ray graphy and computed tomography can be a guide for identifying diaphragmatic injuries. In this case report we presented an isolated left side diaphragmatic rupture after blunt abdominal trauma and treated with an urgent surgical operation. © 2014, European Journal of General Medicine.

Mechanical intestinal obstruction is defined as the partial or total blockage of the passage of digested food in gastrointestinal system towards the distal. If intestinal obstruction is not treated properly it can cause high incidences of morbidity and mortality. The most frequent cause is adhesion after surgery but etiological cause changes frequently with age. Known symptoms of intestinal obstructions are nausea, vomiting, abdominal ache and distention in the abdomen. In our study we aimed to present a 70 year old patient with intestinal obstruction due to phytobezoar who developed sepsis, with the help of current literature. © 2014, TIP ARASTIRMALARI DERNEGI.
