A rare tumor of inferior vena cava diagnosed by endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration

from Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology

A 65‐year‐old, chronic alcoholic and smoker man presented with right‐sided upper abdominal pain of 2‐month duration. His routine hematological and blood biochemistry including serum amylase and liver function tests were normal. Computed tomography of abdomen revealed a 4‐cm retroperitoneal mass adjacent to the third part of duodenum compressing the inferior vena cava. Endoscopic ultrasound revealed marked asymmetrical thickening of the IVC wall with luminal narrowing. However, there was no thrombosis, and blood flow could be visualized through the luminal narrowing on color Doppler. more
