False positives bladder scan in anuric patient with ascites: A case report


A Alamassi, S Ali, R Rampal

Introduction: Urinary retention is one of the common presentations that we often encounter in the Emergency Department. Diagnosis is based on history, clinical examination and bladder scan findings. Sometimes the clinical examination is unreliable, especially in patients with high BMI, ascites or anasarca. This makes the diagnosis uncertain and the bladder scan readings should be interpreted with caution. Thus, radiological imaging might be required before planning further intervention.
