    Abdominal radiograph

    The radiograph shows opacity of soft tissue density in left hemiabdomen that displaces the intestinal loops.

     
    Area of Interest: Abdomen; Imaging Technique: Digital radiography; Procedure: Surgery; Special Focus: Congenital;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Abdominal CT

    Abdominal CT shows a hypoattenuating cystic mass in the left retroperitoneal space, the ascending colon is displaced anteriorly (arrow), the small bowel loops are displaced to the right side.

     
    Area of Interest: Abdomen; Imaging Technique: CT-High Resolution; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Congenital;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Abdominal CT with intravenous contrast
     

    Axial non-enhanced abdominal CT shows hyperdense material in the cystic mass (arrow).

     
    Area of Interest: Abdomen; Imaging Technique: CT-High Resolution; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Congenital;

    Axial contrast-enhaced abdominal CT shows hyperdense material in the cystic mass, no enhancement was seen with intravenous contrast (arrow).

  • Figure 4

    T1-weighted image shows hypointense cystic mass with hyperintense and hypointense dependet parts suggestive of haemorrhage.

     
    Area of Interest: Abdomen; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Congenital;
