ABSTRACT
Objective. We report the first patient to developed abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) with intrahepatic portal venous gas (IHPVG) and pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis following emergency upper gastrointestinal endoscopy. Case presentation. A 53-year-old man underwent an emergency upper gastrointestinal endoscopy for suspicion of upper gastrointestinal bleeding. The patient developed intra-abdominal hypertension and ACS associated with IHPVG after the endoscopy. Although the patient developed severe shock following ACS, he was managed conservatively and successfully recovered. Conclusions. An emergency upper gastrointestinal endoscopy may be associated with intra-abdominal hypertension and ACS. Our report provides an additional case of a survivor who required no surgical intervention for ACS and IHPVG following endoscopy.
