A 51-year-old man presented with a three-month history of intermittent abdominal pain accompanied by nausea and vomiting. Clinical examination showed a slightly tender abdomen without palpable mass or signs of peritonitis. Digital rectal examination was unremarkable. His laboratory investigations were normal except for mild leukocytosis (12.50 × 109/L). Abdominal CT scan revealed two remarkable intra-abdominal mass lesions with slightly dilated proximal intestinal loops but without signs of perforation or intraperitoneal collections (Figure 1).
