Radiographic appearances of transient hepatic attenuation differences (THAD) can mimic tumors. THAD can occur as a result of altered hemodynamics of the hepatic blood flow. Tumoral or non-tumoral processes can play role in the etiology. THADs that appear secondary to the obstruction of the superior vena cava are rarely seen.

Herein, we present computed tomography findings of two cases with THAD secondary to superior vena cava obstruction.
