Burn = fever
Treat with immunoglobulin and aspirin.

There's a lot of changes everywhere. Images, updated tables. A lot of new content in a nutshell. If we can have em in a thread, it'll help.
Picked up a copy, transitioning from 2014-->16.

I'm not using 2015

But in 2014 : it's just given as mesentric colitis
In 2016, they've split it to Acute Mesentric Ischemia and Chronic mesentric ischemia.

Under chronic mesentric ischemia (in 2016) - they've mentioned the weight loss and post prandial pain.
