Fitz-Hugh-Curtis syndrome: linear contrast enhancement of the surface of the liver on CT.


:We present a case of Fitz-Hugh-Curtis syndrome (Chlamydia trachomatis perihepatitis). Contrast-enhanced CT demonstrated enhancement along the surface of the liver, but it was remarkable on the anterior surface. No other abnormalities suspicious for peritonitis were found. Contrast enhancement of the anterior surface of the liver on CT may support the diagnosis of Fitz-Hugh-Curtis syndrome.
