Javadrasshid R, Mozafarpour S, Sadrarami S, Jalili J, Sepehri B - Gastroenterol Hepatol Bed Bench (2012)

Bottom Line: A 28-year-old, 32 week pregnant primigravida woman with a past history of increased blood pressure presented with RUQ pain as well as sudden onset of hematemesis.This case illustrates the occurrence of a rare complication (rupture of portal vein pseudoaneurysm inside the biliary system), appearing as upper gastrointestinal bleeding in a pregnant woman.The cause of the rupture is presumably pregnancy-related.

ABSTRACT
A 28-year-old, 32 week pregnant primigravida woman with a past history of increased blood pressure presented with RUQ pain as well as sudden onset of hematemesis. This case illustrates the occurrence of a rare complication (rupture of portal vein pseudoaneurysm inside the biliary system), appearing as upper gastrointestinal bleeding in a pregnant woman. The cause of the rupture is presumably pregnancy-related. We would like to emphasize the presence of pseudoaneurysm of the portal vein as a rare source of gastrointestinal bleeding in pregnancy.

Figure 0001: ERCP revealed a dilated CBD and a cystic contrast filling.

Mentions: Following C/S the patient developed hematesis, hematochezia and jaundice. Urgent endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) was performed which revealed a dilated CBD and a cystic contrast filling area (Figure 1); no stone or other lesions had been bed detected. Surprisingly, subtle fresh bleeding from major papilla orifice was noted which was compatible with probable hemorrhagic choleducal cyst.
