    • A 52-year-old woman reported mild abdominal pain and fever.
    • Medical history was unremarkable; in particular there was no history of surgery.
    • Laboratory tests were normal.
    • Ultrasonography showed a small hypo-anechoic capsulated lesion that was retroperitoneal, caudal
      to the head of the pancreas, and adjacent to the second portion of the duodenum.
    • Contrast-enhanced CT of the abdomen was performed to investigate further.
