Abstract

We present a case of haemobilia due to severe liver injury in pediatric patient. A boy of six year old suffered a liver fracture and life threatening intraabdominal haemorrhage. Tenth day after the accident and liver sutures the diagnosis of haemobilia was confirmed. Selective hepatic angiography discovered a communication with the biliary tree to the rupture, and embolisation was performed. The patient’s recovery was satisfying. Selective embolisation is a treatment of choice for haemobilia.
