Hemostasis with Metallic Stent for Multiple Metastatic Pancreatic Tumors Complicated with Hemobilia.

INTRODUCTION: Hemobilia, which refers to bleeding from the bile duct, is rare and difficult to treat. We report a case of successful hemostasis of a pancreatic tumor complicated by hemobilia.

CASE PRESENTATION: A 76-year-old man was referred to our hospital with a pancreatic head tumor. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) and endoscopic ultrasonography-FNA were performed, and the patient was diagnosed with pancreatic metastasis of renal cell carcinoma. After discharge, the patient noted worsening jaundice and progressive anemia and was readmitted. ERCP reveals active bleeding from the duodenal papillae. The patient was placed on a fully covered metallic stent and discharged after confirming hemostasis.

CONCLUSION: Renal cell carcinoma is a tumor with abundant blood flow. If hemobilia occurs, bleeding from pancreatic metastatic tumors should be considered. Additionally, hemostasis using a fully covered metallic stent is useful for treating hemobilia in tumors.
