PMID:  20822945     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
This case report describes the incidental finding of a calcified ligamentum arteriosum during post-mortem CT examination. The calcification of the ligament was confirmed at autopsy. Subsequent histological examination revealed the presence of cartilage-like and bone-like tissue as well as extended calcification areas. The importance of not confusing this normal post-mortem CT finding with vessel pathology is being emphasized.
