Abstract

Hemobilia is a rare form of upper gastrointestinal system (GIS) bleeding. Rupture of the hepatic artery aneurysm into the biliary tract is also an uncommon cause of hemobilia. We report a case of hemobilia, secondary to rupture of one of multiple aneurysms of both right and left hepatic arteries. It was treated by hepatic artery ligation.
