Hepatic infarction is relatively uncommon and is usually related to surgery or interventional procedures. Pancreatitis-associated hepatic infarction has not been reported in the literature, and we now describe a case of hepatic infarction in a 31-year-old man with acute pancreatitis. Initial CT scanning demonstrated an enlarged pancreas with multifocal fluid collection, and a large wedge-shaped low attenuation lesion was seen in the right lobe of the liver along with thrombi in the posteroinferior branch of the right portal vein. Hepatic arteri-ography and SMA portography revealed a pseudoaneurysm in the right hepatic artery, thrombi in the main portal vein and its posteroinferior branch, and perfusion defects confined to S6 of the liver.
