Contrast-enhanced abdominal spiral CT scan (axial view) shows a paracaval well-marginated mass. The mass arises lateral to the lumbar vertebral body and displaces medially the inferior vena cava. It is strictly contiguous with the ipsilateral ileolumbar muscle, and shows heterogeneous enhancement due to the presence of cystic and necrotic degeneration.
