BELLIDO-CAPARO, Alvaro et al. Hypoxic hepatitis in an extensive aortic disecction: case report. Rev. gastroenterol. Perú [online]. 2019, vol.39, n.1, pp.88-90. ISSN 1022-5129.

Hypoxic hepatitis is an uncommon cause of hepatic damage characterized by a centrolobular necrosis. Its pathophysiology remains unclear. Aortic dissection is a rare but frequently catastrophic event. It is caused by an aortic intimal tear with propagation of a false channel in the media. Depending on the site and extension, it can cause hypoperfusion of any organ leading to cellular ischemia and necrosis. We are presenting a case of hypoxic hepatitis in a patient with an extensive aortic dissection who present to the emergency department.

Keywords : Hepatitis; Aortic dissection; Necrosis.
