  • Figure 1
    CT abdomen

    Contrast enhanced CT axial scan shows a large solid, calcified mass, 19x16 cm in size and bounded by a thin-intensity rime (arrow), involving the perirenal adipose tissue and the left kidney.

     
    Area of Interest: Abdomen; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 2

    The mass crosses over the median line and displaces the aorta and inferior vena cava, the jejunum and superior mesenteric vessels without signs of infiltration of these structures.

  • Figure 3
    Coronal CT

    MPR on coronal plane shows the retroperitoneal calcified lesion with solid areas in a fatty background, causing mass effect and left kidney involvement.
