Abstract

A metastatic disease causes jaundice is not uncommon and usually related to direct tumor invasion to the biliary tree or massive intrahepatic metastasis. Cholestasis secondary to non-traumatic intrahepatic bleeding caused by metastasis from prostate cancer is never been reported in the literature. We present the first case of a-71-years-old patient developed Cholestasis due to spontaneous intrahepatic bleeding caused by metastasis from prostate cancer that was successfully treated conservatively. Prostatic cancer causes liver metastasis carries worse prognosis and compression of the intrahepatic biliary ducts can have long term unsatisfactory outcomes. © 2020 The Author.
