male, 32 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    CT thorax
     

    A peripheral, lobulated mass (red arrows) with an endoluminal growth in the right inferior lobe bronchus (blue arrow) is evidenced.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: CT thorax;

    Another lobulated mass is seen in the middle lobe (arrows).

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: CT thorax;

    A third nodular mass is present in the left lower lobe (arrows).

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: CT thorax;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    CT abdomen
     

    An enlarged lymph node in the para-aortic region below the level of the left renal vein (arrow).

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: CT abdomen;

    Another enlarged retroperitoneal lymph node on the left of the aortic bifurcation (arrow).

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: CT abdomen;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Ultrasonography
     

    A high frequency ultrasonograph (up to 12 MHz) showing the left testis (IZQ) which is smaller than the right one (DER) and containing one focal calcification (red arrow) next to an area of lesser echogenicity (green...

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Ultrasonography;

    Longitudinal and transverse sections better show some clustered foci of calcifications (red arrows) and the hypoechoic area (green arrow) that induces some retraction to the surface of the testis (blue arrows).

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Ultrasonography;

    A detailed view of the band of hypoechogenicity that pathologically correlated with fibrosis.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Ultrasonography;

    An ultrasonograph also depicting enlarged retroperitoneal lymph nodes, correlating with CT findings.
