Abstract

Background: Wunderlich syndrome (WS) is defined as renal/perirenal haemorrhage in the absence of trauma. Causative factors include neoplasms, vascular abnormalities, cystic kidney diseases, and coagulation disorders. Computed tomography (CT) is the diagnostic method of choice in the diagnosis of WS. We aimed to investigate CT findings, aetiologies, demographic features, and treatment outcomes in a group of patients diagnosed with WS.
