Figure 2: Contrast-enhanced computed tomography scan: Coronal (a), right parasagittal (b) and mid sagittal (c) and 3D volumetric (d) images show an avidly enhancing mass (arrows) with central necrosis. The mass is intimately associated with a large paraumbilical vein (black arrowhead). Draining veins coursing toward the periumbilical area are also seen (white arrowhead) in a pattern like that seen with a recanalized paraumbilical vein associated with portal hypertension. Note continued drainage inferiorly in the anterior abdominal wall through what likely represent the inferior epigastric veins. There is no evidence of liver disease. 3D image shows the relation of the mass to the surrounding structures, and prominent veins extending superiorly and inferiorly
