An abdominal muscular fold mimicking tumour
MetadataShow full item record
Mass-like lesions and anatomical variations sometimes create challenges for diagnosis in both clinical and radiology practice. We present a "pseudomass" originating from the right abdominal wall in a 75-year-old patient with invasive ductal carcinoma of the breast. Age-related structural changes in the abdominal wall, as well as anatomical variations, should be kept in mind in order to establish the correct radiological diagnosis and to avoid unnecessary procedures. © 2009 The British institute of Radiology.
