Ultrasound findings in retroperitoneal lymphangiomyomatosis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A 44-year old female patient with pulmonary lymphangiomyomatosis was examined by standard abdominal sonography. A wide involvement of the retroperitoneal lymph nodes and vessels was found. The relevant sonographic features were enlarged lymph nodes, and multiple anechoic structures, irregular in shape, thin-walled, with intraluminal septa. The findings, which resembled active cysts or liquid-filled bowels, were diagnosed as multiple extasic lymphatic vessels.
