Abstract

Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is a diagnostic and therapeutic tool for pancreaticobiliary diseases. Like every other procedure, ERCP can lead to complications that include pancreatitis, cholecystitis, perforation, and rarely, retroperitoneal hematoma. We present a case of post-ERCP acute hemorrhagic pancreatitis resulting in retroperitoneal hematoma and sequelae of unilateral hydronephrosis and ileus. The patient was treated supportively and had good clinical improvement with resolution of hydronephrosis, ileus and more importantly tolerating oral diet without further episodes of abdominal pain.
