    What's your diagnosis?

    This is an X-ray of a part of the patient's abdomen, who has also gained weight in the past weeks.

    I'll post the correct answer in a few days!

    Correct answer:

    Faecal impaction.

    This AXR shows the stippled pattern seen in faecal impaction. Other findings would be paucity of bowel movement (though with high pitched sounds) and hard faeces on rectal examination.
