- 0Dec 19, '06 by Mommy TeleRNHas anyone ever heard of a bruised liver? Is there a medical term for it? I can't find a thing on the internet with what is a bruised liver and what is the treatment or etiology (I'm guessing trauma to the liver?)
Thought maybe someone has heard of the medical term for it.
