A 66-year-old woman presented with fever and right upper quadrant pain 5 weeks after laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Angiogram revealed occlusion of the right hepatic artery and right portal vein which necessitated a right hepatic lobectomy. To our knowledge this has not been previously reported. The patient recovered uneventfully.
