Abstract: A 67-year-old man suffered from retroperitoneal abscess and sepsis after left hemicolectomy due to advanced colon carcinoma, resulting in disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC). Enhanced computed tomography(CT) showed a lack of cortical enhancement in the arterial phase images despite normally enhanced renal arteries and branches, and well-enhanced renal medulla with a narrow subcapsular cortical enhancement on the parenchymal phase images. These CT findings were typical of acute renal cortical necrosis (ARCN) and obviate the need for renal biopsy, which has been considered to the gold standard for diagnosis.
