female, 52 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    A plain abdominal film

    A plain film of the lesion showing a mass effect with loss of the retroperitoneal anatomical landmarks.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Plain abdominal film;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    An abdominal ultrasonographic study
     

    An abdominal ultrasonogram, showing that the mass in the upper portion is predominantly hyperechoic.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Abdominal ultrasonographic study;

    The ultrasonogram of the mass in the lower portion presenting a more solid appearance.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Abdominal ultrasonographic study;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Helical computed tomography after intravenous contrast administration
     

    A hCT image of the mass, presenting areas of fatty and solid attenuation values.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Helical computed tomography after intravenous contrast administration;

    A hCT image showing the mass displacing the surrounding organs, and engulfing the left kidney.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Helical computed tomography after intravenous contrast administration;

    A hCT image identifying pelvic calcifications inside the tumoral mass.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Helical computed tomography after intravenous contrast administration;
     
     
  • Figure 4
    A magnetic resonance imaging study
     

    A T2-weighted MR image, showing the huge lesion with areas of fatty component.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Magnetic resonance imaging study;

    A T2-weighted MR image, showing the huge lesion with areas of fatty component.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Magnetic resonance imaging study;

    A T1-weighted, fat-suppressed image, with the administration of intravenous gadolinium, showing areas of fatty component and the hypervascular nature of the lesion.
