Özet

Bleeding of parastomal varices is an unusual complication of portal hypertension. We report a case with recurrent parastomal variceal bleeding who had chronic liver disease secondary to autoimmune hepatitis and who had undergone abdominoperineal resection for rectal cancer. She presented four episodes of parastomal variceal bleeding in one month and was successfully treated with combined polidocanol and cyanoactylate glue.
