Patient
female, 65 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    Mediastinal enlarged lymph nodes

    Computed Tomography of the thorax showing enlarged lymph nodes in mediastinum.

     
    Area of Interest: Mediastinum; Thorax; Imaging Technique: CT; Special Focus: Infection; Inflammation;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Computed Tomography findings
     

    Increased volume of the adnexa with central hypodensity and peripheral enhancement. Major axis of the left ovary was 5.2 cm.

     
    Area of Interest: Genital / Reproductive system female; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Contrast agent-intravenous; Special Focus: Inflammation;

    Increased volume of the uterine corpus with central hypodensity revealing an endometrial lesion.

     
    Area of Interest: Genital / Reproductive system female; Pelvis; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Contrast agent-intravenous; Special Focus: Inflammation;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Magnetic Resonance findings
     

    Sagittal T2-weighted image shows an heterogeeous thicker endometrium (arrow).

  • Figure 4
    Post-treatment magnetic resonance imaging
     

    Very good response to antituberculosis therapy instituted. Currently, thin endometrium, without visualization of the lesion of exuberant endometritis detected in the previous study.

     
    Area of Interest: Pelvis; Imaging Technique: MR;

    Mild downsizing of bilateral tubo-ovarian abscesses, with some content liquid filling both tubes.
