    1. Patient Presentation

    • A 45-year-old man presented with a 2-week history of fever, left inguinal pain, and leg swelling.
    • He had had rectal resection for adenocarcinoma 1 year earlier and, just 1 month before, left inguinal lymphadenectomy for a nodal metastasis.
    • Soft tissue ultrasonography revealed the presence of an inguinal fluid collection.
    • Contrast-enhanced MDCT of the abdomen and pelvis was performed to characterize the fluid collection and evaluate the proximal leg region.
