  • Figure 1
    Nonenhanced CT axial image of the pelvis

    An ill-defined heterogeneous mass occupying most of the pelvis. The small round low density lesion in the left gluteus medius muscle represents a neurofibroma of the left gluteal nerve.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Nonenhanced CT axial image of the pelvis;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Contrast-enhanced CT axial image of the pelvis
     

    After intravenous infusion of contrast material some enhancement of the mass is noted.

    Contrast-enhanced CT axial image of the pelvis

    The mass is imaged at a different level, thus revealing displacement, without macroscopic invasion of the uterus.
