ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Adenomyomatosis confirmed by ultrasound.

History: 52 year-old female with right upper quadrant discomfort.

Findings: The gallbladder shows focal, segmental wall thickening with possible fundal mass, and demonstrates multiple comet-tail artifacts extending for the anterior wall. There is no cholelithiasis, pericholecystic fluid, or other gall bladder abnormality.

Ddx: Gallbladder carcinoma, emphasematous cholecystitis. The differential diagnosis of comet-tail artifacts include cholesterol crystals, inspissated colloid in thyroid cysts, gas bubbles in fluid, catheters, surgical clips, and metal.

Exam: None available

No MeSH data available.


Sagital grayscale image of the gallbladder demonstrates hyperechoic foci within the anterior wall with multiple comet-tail artifacts.  Note the focal thickening of the anterior wall and fundal mass-like thickening.  There are no hyperechoic foci, suggesting stones in the dependent portion of the gallbladder, or pericholecystic fluid to suggest cholecystitis.
