There is severe gallbladder wall T2 hyperintensity in keeping with edema, which compresses the mucosa of the gallbladder.
Cystic duct, CBD pancreatic duct are within normal limits with no obstructing lesions seen.
Marked high T2 signal is also demonstrated within the periportal spaces consistent with edema.
Liver also appears slightly enlarged with recanalization of the umbilical vein noted.
Overall findings suggestive of acute hepatitis and could account for the markedly deranged LFTs.
This case demonstrates markedly abnormal gallbladder wall and periportal edema with a normal CBD. Appearances suggest acute hepatitis. Full viral hepatitis screen was carried out and found to be negative. The patient then absconded from the ward.
