    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Liver density before and after intravenous injection of contrast medium;
     
     
Native abdominal CT performed in search of an acute hematoma explaining the acute fall of hemoglobin level shows diffuse hyperdensity of the liver measuring 100-120 HU as an incidental finding. There is no change of hepatic morphology neither alteration of the spleen. The few CT sections through the lung bases didn't reveal any pulmonary disease.
