Abstract

Introduction: The AA. report on a case of one young woman who developed obstructive jaundice induced by hemo- bilia after percutaneous liver biopsy, successfully treated with endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) Methods: An endoscopic sphincterotomy was performed with extraction of the clots Observations: Four weeks after ERCP the patient was healthy and asymptomatic, valuated as outpatient Conclusions: The role of ERCP in managing biliary sequelae of hemobilia is well established: biliary decompression is required if and intrabiliary lot causes obstructive jaundice and/or biliary colic. ERCP is feasible and leads to relief of symptoms in most cases, without the need of surgery. Copyright © 2005 Edizioni Luigi Pozzi.
