Abstract

An 83-year-old female with a long history of urinary incontinence and a permanent urinary catheter presented acutely feeling generally unwell with a blocked catheter and a urinary tract infection. She had type 2 diabetes; past history included hypertension, atrial fibrillation and hysterectomy. On examination she was found to have significant abdominal swelling. She had noticed the swelling increasing over the last three months. On admission the catheter was changed and drained a litre of cloudy urine. An abdominal X-ray (Image 1) was then performed.
