Case #7


Findings

  • Nonobstructive bowel gas pattern
  • No abnormal mass effect
  • Irregular calcification overlying the right twelfth rib


Diagnosis

  • Adrenal calcification

Sample Report

Nonobstructive bowel gas pattern.

No abnormal mass effect.

Irregular calcification overlying the right twelfth rib, which could be associated with the adrenal gland, kidney, or gallbladder. Recommend ultrasound for further evaluation.


Discussion

  • This case turned out to be adrenal calcification related to prior hemorrhage without associated mass
  • While most calcifications turn out to be benign, it is important to rule out associated mass
