Ultrasound of abdomen detected at pelvis  one round bordered mass,  size of  20cm. Its structure looked like cyst with many ring layers as an onion skin sign.








US 1: crossed- section at middle abdomen;  US 2 : with CDI,  mass no vascular inside; US 3:  longitudinal scan over aorta; US 4:  multiple ring layers as onion skin sign; US 5 : with  linear probe.

MSCT  scan with  CE : CT 1: this mass is cystic formation from the coecum; CT 2 : frontal view.



Appendicular mucocele  was made for  diagnosing of the pelvic mass. Operation removed one mass with mucus content from appendix.

CASE 491: TOOTHPICK MOVING TO RETROPERITONEUM, Dr PHAN THANH HẢI, MEDIC MEDICAL CENTER, HCMC, VIETNAM



Man 60 yo with  epigastric pain  one month ago; in  emergency CT of abdomen detected    a  foreign body ( FB) looked like a toothpick penetrating duodenum D2 wall.

But gastroscopy and colonoscopy cannot find  out this foreign body (FB). And  so  do laparoscopy later.

At Medic center,  ultrasound again detected this foreign body (FB) in retroperitoneum  near IVC and aorta (US 1. US 2), very strong shadowing , US 3: longitudinal  FB # 5 cm).




MSCT of abdomen  non CE   (CT1:  crossed section  this FB near aorta , CT 2 : frontal view , CT 3:  3 D view).




Gastroscopic laparoscopy again removed this  toothpick # 5 cm at the wall of D2.






Conclusion : Toothpick  can move to retroperitoneum.
