Liver metastases are an uncommon cause of spontaneous bleeding compared with primary benign/malignant liver lesions. Since metastatic lesions tend to maintain the vascular characteristics of the primary tumor, some metastases have a greater proclivity for hemorrhage into the host organ than others. We describe the clinical and computed tomography (CT) features of a patient previously treated for nonkeratinizing small cell squamous carcinoma of the cervix uteri. As the metastatic rupture was diagnosed while still intraparenchymal and subcapsular, with minimal peritoneal reaction, the patient's outcome was favorable.
