Higher density (35-37 HU) fluid is visible around the liver and much higher density fluid (70-80 HU) seen in the pelvis reflecting a hemoperitoneum.

Young female with diffuse pain and on the CT examination, a hyperdense lesion, possibly a cyst, in the left ovary and blood in the pelvis was found. An alternative possible cause could be an ectopic pregnancy but the laboratory parameters excluded it. Ovarian cyst rupture was suggested as a cause for the hemoperitoneum and is a common cause in non-pregnant young female patients.
