  • Figure 1
    Abdominal ultrasound

    Abdominal ultrasound, transverse scan. A large inhomogeneous ill-defined mass is shown to extend from the enlarged lobulated uterus up to the mid-abdominal level.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Abdominal ultrasound;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    IVP

    There is no evidence of excretion of the left kidney even on delayed films (24 hours after contrast injection).

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: IVP;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Retrograde pyelogram

    Only the lower two thirds of the left uterer are shown.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Retrograde pyelogram;
     
     
  • Figure 4
    Abdominal spiral CT

    Abdominal spiral CT without enhancement. The mass was found to originate from the uterus.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Abdominal spiral CT;

    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Abdominal spiral CT;

    A huge (10cm x 13cm) diffuse mass consisting of different attenuation components including necrotic areas, was demonstrated originating from the uterus, extending to the retroperitoneum.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Abdominal spiral CT;

    After intravenous contrast administration, inhomogenous poor enhancement of the mass is seen.
