Hemorrhagic cholecystitis is a rare life threatening disease therefore early diagnosis and treatment are crucial. Here is a case of spontaneous hemorrhagic cholecystitis in a patient under antiplatelet therapy. Enhanced CT scan was contraindicated due to renal insufficiency. An unenhanced CT scan was performed showing a distended gallbladder with hyperdense content. Contrast ultrasound aided the diagnosis by showing the lack of parietal enhancement of the gallbladder fundus, suggesting rupture. The patient was treated surgically without early complications.
