IMAGING APPEARANCE OF ENLARGED CISTERNA CHYLI MIMICKING RETEROPERITONEAL NODAL DISEASE
It is very common to see enlarged retroperitoneal lymph nodes. However there are circumstances where we report an enlarged retroperitoneal lymph node that is actually not pathological rather an enlarged cisterna chyli mimicking retroperitoneal nodal disease.
We present a case report of a patient with known hepatocellular carcinoma, CT scan triphasic liver was performed and a finding was made with enlarged retroperitoneal lymph node involved by the disease process, however MRI and FNAC correlation was advised, which turned out to be an enlarged cisterna chyli rather than enlarged retroperitoneal node.
