Spontaneous hepatic hemorrhage in older women

, : Spontaneous hepatic hemorrhage in older women. American Surgeon 73(11): 1147-1150

Spontaneous liver hemorrhage in older women is not well described. We report an experience with five postmenopausal women who spontaneously bled from the liver. All five patients presented with acute bleeding. Four were treated nonoperatively. No tumor was identified in any patient. Four patients acutely were discharged alive and well, but one died after operation to control bleeding. Spontaneous liver hemorrhage can occur in a variety of clinical settings, but an association with older women taking hormone replacement and anticoagulation has not been reported.
