Colonic leiomyoma mimicking a liver tumor: an unusual diagnosis after en-block robotic resection.

Nicolás H Dreifuss, Alberto Mangano, Gabriela Aguiluz, Vikas Mehta, Sean Koppe, Charles Berkelhammer, Pier C Giulianotti,

Colonic leiomyomas are rare. Their clinical presentation ranges from asymptomatic polyps detected on endoscopy to large symptomatic abdominopelvic masses. Imaging findings are usually non-specific, and percutaneous biopsy might help with differential diagnosis. However, radical surgery with negative margins is ultimately needed to rule out malignancy. We describe an uncommon presentation ... Read more >>
