Pheochromocytoma of the Broad Ligament: Localization by Computerized Tomography and Ultrasonography

Arch Intern Med. 1980;140(4):550-552. doi:10.1001/archinte.1980.00330160110040

• Computerized tomography (CT) and ultrasonography demonstrated a pheochromocytoma of the broad ligament of the uterus in a patient in whom arteriographic findings had been negative. We suggest that either or both of these techniques be used initially because, although they are not histologically specific, they are noninvasive and sensitive. An additional advantage of CT is its ability to evaluate sites of extra-adrenal pheochromocytomas above the diaphragm.
