Patient six months after her disaster, holding a picture showing
 her emaciated state during the acute process.

This lady came in with an intraabdominal disaster. Perforated typhoid ileitis! We operated multiple times via an open abdomen technique and finally closed the abdomen with skin flaps-leaving a large fascial defect. She had a large iatrogenic hernia. She was emaciated but alive. We saw her back after 6 months and she had put on quite a bit of weight. We repaired her hernia with polypropylene mesh. She had an uneventful recover.
