We describe the radiological and intraoperative correlation of a large omental hematoma with active intra-abdominal bleeding secondary to omental lacerations in a 75-year-old man following blunt trauma from a motor vehicle accident. The purpose of this article is to emphasize the importance of recognizing omental and mesenteric injuries in trauma patients, as these injuries are rare and can be overlooked on CT.
