A 59 year old man reported with a complaint of increasing abdominal distention over the past year. He denied any abdominal pain or other gastrointestinal symptoms.

He reported a weight loss over the past year, despite his increasing abdominal girth. In addition a gradually increasing swelling over the left gluteal region was observed along with pain in the back and gluteal region since 6-7 months. Clinical examination showed a markedly distended lower abdomen that was soft, non-tender, without peritoneal signs and bowel sounds were hypoactive. All other laboratory indices including stool occult blood and coagulation profile were insignificant.

Computed tomogram of the lower abdomen, pelvis and thorax is performed with oral and Intravenous contrast and the relevant scans are shown below.
