Abstract

Spontaneous liver rupture is an uncommon and life-threatening condition often associated with high mortality rate. The most common causes are preeclampsia and HELLP syndrome during pregnancy, liver tumours and overdosing of anticoagulant therapy, however, hepatic rupture in the absence of underlying pathology is an extremely rare occurrence. Treatment can include observation, embolization, hepatic artery ligation, hepatic lobectomy, hematoma evacuation and packing, and even liver transplantation has been described.
