AbstractNine neurosurgical patients with unusual gastrointestinal complications are presented. Their diagnostic clinical features, as well as pitfalls in their diagnosis are highlighted. A high index of clinical suspicion of these unusual complications is important as patients' decreased level of consciousness and concomitant steroid therapy often complicates the clinical presentation. Progressive abdominal distension and absent or sluggish bowel sounds were the most consistent clinical features in comatose patients with peritonitis, whereas, high fever and markedly elevated white cell counts were often absent. © 1992 Informa UK Ltd All rights reserved: reproduction in whole or part not permitted.
