Portal hypertension is often associated with an extensive collateral circulation. The paraumbilical vein is a relatively common collateral pathway recognized in these patients but cutaneous bleeding from the umbilicus is rare; the same as first manifestation of cirrhosis is exceptional. We report a case of umbilical venous bleed causing hemodynamic compromise, which turned out to be a case of alcoholic cirrhosis with portal hypertension. The patient was managed with suture ligation of the vessels.
