Abstract

Although vascular complications following laparoscopic cholecystectomy are rare, hemobilia may occur within the first 4 weeks after surgery. We report a 57-year-old woman with hemobilia secondary to a pseudoaneurysm of the right hepatic artery presenting 13 months after laparoscopic cholecystectomy. To our knowledge, such late presentation has never before been reported.
