Abstract  
The authors evaluated the diagnosis of the cause of post-partum haemorrhage (PPH) by computed tomography (CT). They retrospectively transferred 15 patients with PPH from local clinics between January 2010 and December 2011. CT revealed diverse causes. Only two cases had no additional finding on CT. They found deep tearing extending to the lower uterine segment and uterine artery in two cases, whereas five cases were an arteriovenous malformation, and one case was a uterine pseudoaneurysm.
Key words:  Postpartum hemorrhage      Computed tomography      X-ray computed
