January 01, 2008
An 11-year-old girl was brought to the emergency department (ED) after 3 days of intermittent, dull, nonradiating left lower abdominal pain. She also had 3 episodes of nonbloody, nonbilious emesis in the 2 days before presentation. Three days earlier, the patient had been vaccinated against influenza and varicella by her pediatrician.
