Abstract

Noninvasive imaging studies, particularly computed tomography (CT), are the first step in evaluation of patients with suspected hepatic trauma. Iatrogenic injury, accounting for up to one-third of cases, may commonly result in hepatic artery pseudoaneurysm formation. We present a case in which a giant hepatic artery pseudoaneurysm was misinterpreted as an intrahepatic hematoma on sequential CT scans due to the failure to employ dynamic contrast-enhanced scan techniques.
