Background : When clinically it appears impossible to opine regarding the exact nature of the lump by routine and even sometimes special investigations, such lumps are designated as “ Obscure intra abdominal masses”. Nature of study: A hospital based prospective study. Objective: Obscure intra abdominal masses have been subjected to Abdominal aortography in an attempt to diagnose them. Material and method: The procedure was carried out in patients of obscure intra abdominal masses who failed to be diagnosed even after routine and available special investigations and non-invasive procedures. Thus a total of twelve cases were included in this study. By using per-cutaneous trans femoral counter current abdominal aortography to locate the site of origin and nature of the obscure intra abdominal masses. Results and significance of Aortography: Demonstrable aortographic changes had been noted in primary malignant retro-peritoneal tumours as well as malignant tumours of the viscera which had invaded the retro-peritoneum.At the same time benign Mesothelioma had produced tumour staining while carcinoma of ascending colon and metastaic tumours had not produced any angiographic patterns.
