Introduction:In the current article we present a case of a young patient who came to our emergency room due to abdominal pain. This is done to try and let our readers understand the thinking processes that we as surgeons use when deliberating about this kind of a patient, and later on to see how this evolves as the case becomes more complicated due to an endocrine pathology.
Methods:To evaluate the thought process of experts in this field, we decided to use a Web-based system called Kahoot, a classroom formative assessment tool that provides an engaging learning space. Thus, we have used the Kahoot system to find out how our experts would treat this patient, and we have used their responses in Kahoot as part of our results.
Results:The results show the different opinions of our experts in handling this case, as well as their expert opinions on how to treat what was the intriguing part of her diagnosis - the fact that she had a solid pseudopapillary tumor of the pancreas.
Conclusion:Lower abdominal pain in a young female is a complex entity, which is best handled by a team and done with a systematic approach. The use of basic lab results, and imaging and expert consults is mandatory, and in rare cases (like the one depicted here) one can find themselves with rare entities that demand an extensive diagnosis and treatment pathway.
