A clinical case of epigastric pain 3 months after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is presented. The CT finding of an abdominal mass with thick wall, internal horizontal by-gravity level and linear contrast enhancement at the border between the two different components was correctly interpreted for a chronic hematoma with separation of the formed blood elements from blood serum; in particular, the linear contrast enhancement was related to an artery-feeding vessel.
