We describe a rare sequel of corrosive ingestion. In this patient, ingestion of a corrosive led to ischemic necrosis of the entire left lobe of the liver (segments II, III, and IV) in addition to causing full-thickness necrosis of the esophagus/stomach, infarction of the spleen, and injury to the left hemidiaphragm. Solid organ involvement following corrosive ingestion is uncommon. Although involvement of the spleen and pancreas from extension of corrosive burns from the adjacent stomach is occasionally described, involvement of the liver following corrosive ingestion has not been reported in the literature till date.
