          Abstract

          Perirenal bleeding following biopsy was assessed in 25 consecutive cases using computerized axial tomography (CT) scanning. Perirenal hematomas were found in 15 patients (60%). In 8 patients the hematomas were moderate or large in size. There was no correlation between the clinical findings, fall in hemoglobin, presence of macroscopic hematuria and the finding of perirenal hematoma by CT scanning.
