3. Anterior cutaneous nerve entrapment syndrome with pain present only during Carnett’s sign testing: a case report (PubMed)

, with normal laboratory and imaging testing; therefore, conservative therapy was initiated. However, the abdominal pain continued. Re-examination 16 days later revealed three tender points in accordance with intercostal nerves Th10, Th11, and Th12, with the pain occurring only during Carnett's sign testing. A cutaneous injection of 1% lidocaine was administered, and the abdominal pain was resolved about 30 min later. Based on these results, anterior cutaneous nerve entrapment syndrome was diagnosed.It (...) is sometimes hard to diagnose anterior cutaneous nerve entrapment syndrome without testing for Carnett's sign. If patients present with chronic abdominal pain, clinicians should test for Carnett's sign even if no pain is elicited during regular abdominal palpation.

4. Chronic Abdominal Wall Pain: A Common Yet Overlooked Etiology of Chronic Abdominal Pain. (PubMed)

of chronic abdominal wall pain can be made using patient history, physical examination, and response to a trigger point injection, patients often undergo extensive and exhaustive laboratory, imaging, and procedural work-up before being diagnosed with this condition, given it is often overlooked. Carnett's sign is a specialized physical examination technique that can help support the fact that the abdominal pain originates from the abdominal wall rather than from the abdominal viscera. The mainstay

consistently showed the presence of the following 4 characteristics: sensory disturbances at the painful abdominal area (78%), a positive pinch sign (78%), a positive Carnett's sign (87%), and a positive response to a modified rectus sheath block (>50% pain reduction, 81%). The majority of patients are female of young or middle age with a normal BMI reporting complaints that occurred spontaneously in either a sudden or gradual timeframe, developing a severe (NRS 6-8) chronic abdominal pain that was only

6. Prevalence of Anterior Cutaneous Nerve Entrapment Syndrome (ACNES) in a Pediatric Population with Chronic Abdominal Pain. (PubMed)

with new-onset CAP during a 2 years' time period. All individuals were identified through a standard hospital registration system. History, physical examination, diagnosis, and success of treatment were obtained in patients who were diagnosed as having ACNES.Twelve of 95 adolescents with CAP were found to be experiencing ACNES. Carnett sign was positive at the lateral border of the rectus abdominus muscle in all 12. Altered skin sensation was present in 11 of 12 patients with ACNES. Six weeks after

They were interviewed postoperatively using an adapted quality of life questionnaire (testing quality of life in children).All subjects (n = 6; median age, 15 years; range, 9-16 years) were previously healthy school-aged children without prior illness or earlier surgery. Each presented with intense abdominal pain and a positive Carnett sign. Blood, urine tests, and abdominal ultrasound

the examination more difficult. Inspection [ , ] General inspection Does the patient look unwell? Is pain apparent? If the patient is writhing it could be due to colic in some form. A person with peritonitis lies still. Is there jaundice? This may not be easily apparent in artificial light. Is there evidence of dehydration? Are there signs of weight loss or wasting (may be a sign of malabsorption or malignancy)? Look for purpura (may be present in hypersplenism or impaired clotting function). Look for spider (...) naevi (liver disease). Xanthelasma (symmetrical yellow plaques around the eyelids) may be present in primary biliary cirrhosis or chronic biliary obstruction. Kayser-Fleischer rings (a brown-yellow ring in the outer rim of the cornea) may be present in Wilson's disease. [ ] Leaning over the face to inspect respiration can be used to smell the patient's breath - eg, for alcohol. Hyperventilation may be a sign of acidosis (chronic kidney disease). Examination of the hands Look for: Whether the hands
