The area of the mass is seen on the sagittal reconstruction. On later questioning, the patient reported feeling poorly for a few weeks before the present admission. Because of the uncertainty about the character of the mass, the inaccessibility to precutaneous intervention, and the likely slow, smoldering resolution with non-operative antibiotic treatment, it was elected to explore laparoscopically with probable conversion to open.
