The images are related to a fatal and fulminant case, initiating with sudden and unexplained vomiting, in a woman aging 48 years. No relevant previous diseases were referred; apart from a borderline hypertension and hyperlipidemia, both treated not in a regular basis. She was sent in a surgical emergency after a short visit from the family doctor, who ruled out intoxication.
