Abstract

Reported here is a patient with celiac disease in whom a spurious pelvic mass was suggested by computed tomography. This pitfall can be prevented by an awareness of the normal appearance of the small bowel following intravenous contrast enhancement and by monitoring of the examination by a radiologist. Delayed scanning or real-time ultrasound examination will confirm that the initial computed tomography appearance is due to small bowel loops.
