Direct invasion of the transverse colon by a cecal tumor.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Direct invasion of the transverse colon is known to result from noncontiguous primary tumors spreading along ligamentous attachments or from direct extension of metastatic disease involving the greater omentum. The resultant desmoplastic reaction produces characteristic findings on barium enema.

We present such a case and discuss the radiographic findings.
