Spontaneous rupture of the liver in amyloidosis.
Am J Gastroenterol. 1997 Aug; 92(8):1385-6.AJ

Abstract

Hepatic rupture is an unusual complication of hepatic amyloidosis. We report the case of a 59-yr-old man with a subcapsular hematoma of the liver with hepatic rupture secondary to amyloidosis. The patient died during the surgery. The etiology, pathology, diagnosis, and treatment of this complication are discussed. Previously reported cases of subcapsular hematoma of the liver secondary to amyloidosis are reviewed. This knowledge and an awareness of the possible diagnosis will help to decrease the high mortality rate associated with this complication.
