oa South African Medical Journal - Cystic pneumatosis
A case of cystic pneumatosis is recorded, with a short review of the literature on this subject. Of the etiological theories mentioned, the mechanical seems to be the best supported, although there is some reason to incriminate an associated dietary deficiency. The case descriptionbed conforms with the view that pyloric obstruction is the commonest predisposing factor of intestinal gas cysts. It is of added interest in that neurofibroma of the stomach is an uncommon gastric tumour.
