Abdominal-wall tenderness: A useful sign in the acute abdomen.

Abstract

120 patients admitted as an emergency with localised abdominal pain were tested for abdominal-wall tenderness. Of the 24 patients with a positive test only 1 had a detectable intra-abdominal cause. In the remaining 23 no reason for the pain could be found.
