Endoscopic retrograde cholangiography (ERC)-induced subcapsular hepatic hematoma is a rare but potentially fatal complication. Right hypochondrial pain is the most common symptom and diagnosis is based on imaging after procedure. Majority can be managed successfully with conservative measures. Angioembolization and surgery may be required in hemodynamically unstable patients. We report a case of ERC-induced subcapsular hepatic hematoma detected laparoscopically following endoscopic stone extraction and managed conservatively.
