Focal hemorrhagic necrosis of the liver. A rare cause of hemoperitoneum.


A 44-year-old white female developed hepatic hemorrhage due to focal hepatic necrosis. This is the only reported case of its kind we have found. No other underlying processes were identified except for the chronic use of oral conjugated estrogens. The possible role of steroids and a possible relationship to the pathogenesis of peliosis hepatis is discussed.
