The CT image shows evidence of gross ascites, scalloped liver margin (Whit arrow) . Ascites could result from a number of reasons including tuberculosis, peritoneal carcinomatosis, chronic liver disease amongst others. Scalloping of visceral organs is typical for pseudomyxoma peritonei and can also be seen in peritoneal carcinomatosis. Scalloping has occasionaly also been reported with periotneal tuberculosis. The CT also shows a calcified mural thickening of a descending colonic loop (black arrow). Colonoscopy and ascitic fluid analysis confirmed the diagnosis of a mucinous colonic adenocarcinoma with pseudomyxoma peritonei
