Abstract

Several cases of a fat mass-like lesion adjacent to and/or projecting into the inferior vena cava have been presented as a normal variant of perioesophageal fat distribution or as intravascular lipoma. We report a case of a lipoma of the inferior vena cava, studied with coronal reformatted CT images, ultrasound and colour Doppler imaging, in a 78-year-old female patient.
