In a minority of cases the amount of air in the chest increases markedly when a one-way valve is formed by an area of damaged tissue, leading to a tension pneumothorax which leads to steadily worsening oxygen shortage and low blood pressure. Unless reversed by effective treatment, it can result in death. Diagnosis of a pneumothorax by physical examination alone can be difficult.

The history of the headache An acute onset of the headache of the patient’s life associated with a stiff neck. Figure 3 CT-scan & MRI An ill appearing patient on physical examination typically lead the health care practitioner to consider the diagnosis and order a CT (computerized tomography) scan of the head. If the CT scan is performed within 72 hours of the onset of the headache it will detect 93% to 100% of all aneurysms. Figure 4 Lumbar Puncture In the few cases that are not recognized by CT the health care practitioner may consider performing a lumbar puncture to identify blood in the cerebrospinal fluid that runs in the subarachnoid space.

So, there must be a high index of clinical suspicion of internal hernia to every patient, who presents to the emergency department with obstruction clinical features. Incarceration is less common. A detailed patient’s anamnesis is very important, because a previous surgery that could cause an acquired internal hernia like Roux-en-Y, can easily add internal hernia into the differential diagnoses. Furthermore, patients with congenital internal hernias often report a history of chronic, mild, digestive complains and chronic pain or a previous visit to the emergency department because of abdominal pain that was improved with spasmolytics
These include aminoglycosides such as streptomycin and gentamicin, tetracyclines (especially doxycycline), and the fluoroquinolone ciprofloxacin. Mortality associated with treated cases of bubonic plague is about 1–15%, compared to a mortality of 40–60% in untreated cases. People potentially infected with the plague need immediate treatment and should be given antibiotics within 24 hours of the first symptoms to prevent death. Other treatments include oxygen, intravenous fluids, and respiratory support. People who have had contact with anyone infected by pneumonic plague are given prophylactic antibiotics.
