Abstract
Transcatheter arterial embolization (TAE) is widely used in the treatment of unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma. Its common complications are right upper quadrant pain, nausea, vomiting, and rare complications include focal pancreatic necrosis, gastric ulcer, renal failure, DIC, biliary tree necrosis and splenic infarction and so on. It has been reported that hepatobronchial fistula could develop as a pleuropulmonary complication of liver abscess. We report a case of hepatobronchial fistula caused by complicating liver abscess in a patient with hepatocellular carcinoma who was treated with TAE. (Korean J Hepatol 1999;5:55-58)
