  • Figure 1
    Ultrasound
     

    Ultrasound shows a round, homogeneous and hypoechoic mass located in the mesograstrium.

     
    Area of Interest: Oncology; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Pathology;

    On power Doppler, the mass demonstrates clear internal vascularization.

  • Figure 2
    Sagittal CT

    Sagittal CT confirming the retroperitoneal location of the mass, slighly superiorly to the level of the aortic bifurcation.

     
    Area of Interest: Abdomen; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    CT
     

    CT demonstrates a retroperitoneal mass, located between the aorta and vena cava, with marked enhancement on the late arterial phase.

     
    Area of Interest: Abdomen; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Neoplasia;

    On the portal phase the enhancement persists. It is possible to see that the mass doesn't invade any of the adjacent structures, only causes a little bulging of the inferior vena cava.
