  • A 66-year-old woman complained of intermittent abdominal discomfort.
  • Medical history included bilateral adnexectomy performed 5 years earlier.
  • Transabdominal ultrasonography did not reveal any pathology. Gastroscopy and colonoscopy
    also gave normal results.

  • Laboratory findings were normal and, in particular, levels of tumor biomarkers were not
    increased.

  • She was referred for abdominal CT with oral contrast medium.
