The Answer of spot diagnosis 42

As the CT scan had shown increased adipose tissue that compressed the bladder and the rectum, the diagnosis of pelvic lipomatosis was made based on the clinical and the radiological findings. Since renal function was unimpaired and symptoms attenuated, the conservative management with close follow up was decided.

  • The differential diagnoses : any pelvic mass that compress bladder and the ureters.
  • No further investigations is needed.
  • Pelvic lipomatosis is the likely diagnosis.
  • No treatment should be done. conservative management with close follow up only.
