PMID:  2061769     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Hemobilia in children is rare and has so far been described only as a complication of blunt abdominal trauma. A case of hemobilia secondary to liver abscess treated successfully by selective arterial embolization is described. Hemobilia should be considered in any case of gastrointestinal hemorrhage before any operative intervention is undertaken.
