Case contributed by Dr Alexandra Stanislavsky


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. Note also left renal lower pole calculus.

Case Discussion

Subsequent CT (not shown) showed this to be a large, peripherally calcified fibroid within a bulky multifibroid uterus.
