    CT scan of the abdomen
     

    CT scan demonstrates a 5cm soft tissue retroperitoneal mass in the region of the lower abdomen. The mass demonstrates peripheral vascular enhancement with intravenous contrast in the arterial phase.

    Venography and aortography
     

    Venography via a left femoral vein puncture demonstrates extrinsic compression of the left common iliac vein by a rounded mass.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Venography and aortography;

    Aortography via a right common femoral artery approach demonstrates a complex vascular mass inferior to the origin of the inferior mesenteric artery, which has a prominent vascular blush and takes a...

Aortography via a right common femoral artery approach demonstrates a complex vascular mass inferior to the origin of the inferior mesenteric artery, which has a prominent vascular blush and takes a feeding supply from several vessels in this region including the superior mesenteric artery.
