Click 72-year-old male presented with a 15-day history of diffuse abdominal pain and positive FOBT which turned out to be secondary to colonic angiolipoma. Noncontrast CT of the abdomen demonstrates an oval and pedunculated lesion, dependent of the right colon is identified near the hepatic flexure. It has predominant fat attenuation, and irregular areas of soft tissue attenuation. The mass measured 6,3 x 4 x 4,2 cm. Multiple diverticula were observed in the sigmoid colon without associated inflammatory signs. Images were obtained using an Emotion 6 Siemens with a CT setting of 120 kVp with 100 mAs and 2mm slices. Oral contrast was also administered.

Click 72-year-old male presented with a 15-day history of diffuse abdominal pain and positive FOBT which turned out to be secondary to colonic angiolipoma. Contrast enhanced CT of the abdomen and pelvis in portal venous phase demonstrates an oval and pedunculated lesion, dependent of the right colon is identified near the hepatic flexure. It has predominant fat attenuation, and irregular areas of soft tissue attenuation. The mass measured 6,3 x 4 x 4,2 cm. The lesion does not present significant enhancement. Some vessels are identified in its interior. Multiple diverticula were observed in the sigmoid colon without associated inflammatory signs. Images were obtained using an Emotion 6 Siemens with a CT setting of 120 kVp with 100 mAs and 2mm slices following the intravenous administration of 90 ml of Omnipaque 300 at a rate of 2.5 ml per second. Oral contrast was also administered.
