Abstract

A 55-year-old woman developed end-stage liver disease and the hepetorenal syndrome secondary to cryptogenic cirrhosis. Orthotopic liver transplantation was complicated by bile peritonitis, requiring reoperation and eventual placement of an internal biliary stent. On postoperative day 26, hemobillia was caused by localized rupture of mycotic (Aspergillus fumigatus) hepatic artery pseudoaneurysms with fistulization into the biliary tree. After arterial reconstruction with a reversed autologous saphenous vain graft, the patient was treated successfully with liposomal amphotericin B.
