Abstract

Background: A 38-year-old woman presented for a follow-up CT of the neck and the chest. She had a history of familial disease and neck surgery 11 years earlier. Physical examination and laboratory results were normal. An intrapericardial lesion was suspected on a thoracic MR examination 5 years earlier.

Unenhanced CT scan, contrast-enhanced CT scan and scintigraphy (Octreotide scan) of the thorax were carried out.
