Computed tomography manifestations of renal hemangiopericytoma

Computed tomography manifestations of renal hemangiopericytoma Renal hemangiopericytoma (HPC) is a rare tumor. There are no unique radiological findings that can reliably aid in its preoperative diagnosis. A 60-year-old Japanese male was admitted for an abdominal mass. Ultrasound revealed a heterogeneous hyperechoic mass. Computed tomography (CT) showed a heterogeneous mass and tumor vascularity by a precontrast and dynamic study with maximum intensity projection (MIP) and volume-rendering technique (VRT). Radical nephrectomy was performed, and the histopathogic diagnosis revealed renal HPC. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Acta Radiologica SAGE

Abstract

Renal hemangiopericytoma (HPC) is a rare tumor. There are no unique radiological findings that can reliably aid in its preoperative diagnosis. A 60-year-old Japanese male was admitted for an abdominal mass. Ultrasound revealed a heterogeneous hyperechoic mass. Computed tomography (CT) showed a heterogeneous mass and tumor vascularity by a precontrast and dynamic study with maximum intensity projection (MIP) and volume-rendering technique (VRT). Radical nephrectomy was performed, and the histopathogic diagnosis revealed renal HPC.
