Hepatic artery aneurysm following cholecystectomy

Postgraduate Medical Journal
W E Thomas, R E May

Abstract

A rare case is reported of an hepatic artery aneurysm developing 5 months after cholecystectomy. This presented as massive haemobilia as a result of the aneurysm communicating with the cystic duct stump. The diagnosis was delayed owing to the complicating features of Waldenström's macroglobulinaemia and jejunal diverticulosis.
