Methamphetamine consumption and life-threatening abdominal complications: A case report.

Abstract Methamphetamine (METH) abuse is increasing rapidly all over the world and becoming a significant public health concern in China. However, abdominal complications secondary to METH abuse are usually overlooked. We describe an unusual case of gangrenous cholecystitis and small intestinal ischemia due to METH abuse.

AB  - RATIONALE: Methamphetamine (METH) abuse is increasing rapidly all over the world 
      and becoming a significant public health concern in China. However, abdominal
      complications secondary to METH abuse are usually overlooked. We describe an
      unusual case of gangrenous cholecystitis and small intestinal ischemia due to
      METH abuse. PATIENT CONCERNS: In this report, a 44-year-old male patient with
      abdominal pain and hematochezia has a history of crystal meth abuse. DIAGNOSIS:
      The patient was diagnosed as septic shock, paralytic ileus, gangrenous
      cholecystitis, and small intestinal ischemia due to METH abuse based on computed 
      tomography (CT) scan, endoscopy examination, laparotomy, and pathology.
      INTERVENTIONS: Antishock treatment, broad-spectrum antibiotics, and exploratory
      laparotomy were given. OUTCOMES: The patient survived. Six months later, he
      tolerated oral intake and stopped using crystal METH. LESSONS: Visceral ischemia 
      should be considered if an adult patient with a history of METH abuse is
      accompanied by abdominal pain and hematochezia.
