Abstract

Computed tomography of the liver was performed in I7 patients with Dubin-Johnson syndrome as well as 50 control patients free of liver disease. Multiple readings of liver attenuation values were made in the patients in these two groups and their values compared. The Dubin-Johnson group had liver attenuation values significantly higher than the control group but considerable overlap between the 2 groups existed. It is concluded that computed tomography may be useful as confirmatory evidence of Dubin-Johnson syndrome.
