Abstract

In about 10% of lymphopathies with extensive retroperitoneal adenopathies, adenopathies are also encountered within the hepatoduodenal ligament. When large, such adenopathies, which surround the portal vein, hepatic artery, and bile duct, give rise to a particular ultrasound pattern: the “rosebud pattern.”

Key words
