Desmoid tumor of rectus abdominis presenting with Grey-Turner's and Cullen's sign is rare. Herein, we report desmoid tumor of rectus abdominis in a 64-year-old multiparous female who presented with ecchymosis involving left flank and around the umbilicus. Histopathological examination of biopsy from the tumor confirmed the diagnosis of the desmoid tumor. She was referred to a surgeon for radical resection.

Grey Turner's sign and Cullen's sign in acute pancreatitis.

Gastrointest Radiol 1989 ;14(1):31-7

Department of Radiology, School of Medicine, State University of New York, Stony Brook 11794.

Four patients with acute pancreatitis presenting with Grey Turner's sign or Cullen's sign have been studied by computed tomography (CT). These observations help confirm the precise anatomic pathways by which the extravasated pancreatic enzymes and their effects lead to these cutaneous discolorations. Grey Turner's sign is produced by spread from the anterior pararenal space to between the two leaves of the posterior renal fascia and subsequently to the lateral edge of the quadratus lumborum muscle.

Subcutaneous manifestations (Grey Turner's sign and Cullen's sign) of severe acute pancreatitis (SAP) are often discussed but rarely observed in a daily clinic setting. This paper will demonstrate the anatomic pathways followed by the extravasated pancreatic enzymes and how their effects lead to these ecchymoses by multiplanar reformation (MPR) images obtained by helical computed tomography (hCT). A 34-year-old female was admitted with SAP. Read More
