Computed tomographic (CT) scanning is very accurate in the recognition of intracerebral hemorrhage. However, when radiographic contrast material has been administered, there may be confusion between an unsuspected hematoma and an enhancing brain lesion. We recently encountered two cases of spontaneous hemorrhage occurring during the enhancement phase of the CT examination immediately after unenhanced scans showed no evidence of hemorrhage. The sudden appearance of increased attenuation presented the diagnostic problem of distinguishing between hemorrhage and an occult enhancing lesion.
