Rim calcified pelvic mass: large fibroid

Case contributed by Dr Alexandra Stanislavsky

Presentation

Post-stenting check x-ray done.

Patient Data

Age: 50
Gender: Female

Large rim calcified mass in the pelvis.  

The presence of the JJ stent conveniently shows that this is not a calcified bladder wall, but is superior to bladder.

Subsequent CT (not shown) showed this to be a large, peripherally calcified fibroid within a bulky multifibroid uterus. Note also left renal lower pole calculus.
