VAN ZYL, Chris; DAVIS, Razaan; HURTER, Delmé  e  WESTHUIZEN, Gerhard van der. Giant peritoneal loose bodies. S. Afr. J. radiol. (Online) [online]. 2015, vol.19, n.1, pp. 1-3. ISSN 1027-202X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/sajr.v19i1.730.

Giant peritoneal loose bodies are rare lesions, originating from auto-amputated appendices epiploicae. They may cause urinary or gastrointestinal obstruction and, should the radiologist not be familiar with the entity, can potentially be confused with malignant or parasitic lesions. Familiarity with their characteristic computed tomographic features is essential to prevent unnecessary surgery in the asymptomatic patient. We present a case of a 70-year-old man diagnosed with two giant peritoneal loose bodies.
