An unusual cause of left iliac fossa mass
Robert Lo, Wai K Lai
A 57-year-old lady with biopsy-proven Child’s B alcoholic cirrhosis and known oesophageal varices presented with a 6 months history of left lower quadrant abdominal pain. Clinical examination revealed a mobile tender mass in the left iliac fossa. There was no organomegaly or any dilated abdominal veins. Rectal examination and sigmoidoscopy were unremarkable.
Computed tomography (CT) of the abdomen was performed (Figure 1).
What is the diagnosis?
