Computed tomography of the chest is often useful in evaluating lung consolidation and endobronchial obstruction. Our case demonstrates a consolidated lung associated with endobronchial obstruction and an interesting finding of enhanced pulmonary vasculature contrasted against surrounding pulmonary parenchyma of low density. We believe this represents the computed tomography appearance of drowned lung.
