A 58-year-old man with a history of renal cell carcinoma and hypertension presented to the emergency department with shortness of breath and abdominal pain. On examination, his heart rate was 99/min, respiration rate was 24/min, and oxygen saturation while breathing room air was 90%. He had abdominal distension and bilateral pitting edema of the leg. An abdominal ultrasonogram showed heterogeneous shrunken liver, ascites, and mildly distended gallbladder containing sludge, with echogenic foci showing comet-tail artifacts from a sagittal view (image A, arrow) and a transverse view (image B, arrow). These features are consistent with adenomyomatosis. The patient was treated for acute respiratory distress, ascites, and other comorbidities associated with stage IV renal cell carcinoma. A week after admission, the patient’s acute symptoms resolved and he was discharged to subacute rehabilitation with outpatient follow-up.
