Abstract

Segmental enhancement on hepatic CT was demonstrated in a 58-year-old male with superior vena caval obstruction due to bronchogenic carcinoma. Chest CT demonstrated a bulky mass in the right pulmonary hilus and tumor thrombus in the superior vena cava which was completely obstructed. Precontrast upper abdominal CT showed no abnormality in the liver, whereas postcontrast CT showed markedly enhancing structures in the anterior chest wall, which was thought collateral vessels. Obvious hyperattenuation areas were shown in the medial and right anterosuperior segment of the liver, accompanying strong enhancement of the middle and left hepatic veins which were thought also a part of the collateral pathways.
