Text Appearing Before Image:
nal Wall; B. Something in Intestines; C. Something in Peritoneal Cavity; D. Some Enlarged Organ; E. Tumor from Pelvis or Abdomen. A. Abdominal Prominence from Some Affection of Wall. Obesity (Fig. 118). There is evidence of fat deposit in other parts of the body.The abdominal wall may be picked up as a thick roll, and the fingers made to almostmeet beneath (Figs. 119, 120), showing that most of the prominence is due to thethickness of the wall. There is no distinct localized mass, like a tumor in the wall. Percussion gives resonance all over the abdomen. Sometimes a distinct fatwave may be obtained, but it may be distinguished from a fluid wave by theexpedient shown in Fig. 36, and also by percussion. In some cases, when thepatient stands, a distinct roll of fat drops below the general abdominal contour,as shown in Fig. 121. Fig. 122 shows a case of obesity mistaken for ovarian tumor and sent to ahospital for operation. Fig. 123 shows a case of obesity which was mistaken forpregnancy.
