Case #12


Findings

  • Nonobstructive bowel gas pattern with a moderate colonic stool burden
  • No evidence of free intraperitoneal air
  • No abnormal intraabdominal mass effect
  • Irregular calcification overlying the expected location of the left adrenal gland


Diagnosis

  • Adrenal calcification

Sample Report

Nonobstructive bowel gas pattern with a moderate colonic stool burden.

No evidence of free intraperitoneal air.

No abnormal intraabdominal mass effect.

Nonspecific irregular calcification overlying the expected location of the left adrenal gland. Recommend nonemergent ultrasound for further evaluation.


Discussion

  • While most calcifications turn out to be benign, it is important to rule out associated mass – particularly when calcifications may be adrenal in origin
