Portal hypertension is a serious complication of liver cirrhosis and it could lead to esophageal varices. A case of twenty-nine years old woman is presented. The patient had open cholecystectomy and choledochoduodenostomy with T-tube because of acute pancreatitis 3 years ago in local hospital. Since the surgical procedure the patient suffered from recurrent abdominal pain, nausea and flatulence. These symptoms were caused by leaving the short part of T-tube in common bile duct. As a consequence of recurrent cholangitis, liver cirrhosis with portal hypertension and hypersplenism developed. In subsequent course of the disease variceal bleeding occurred. The diagnostic and therapeutic procedures are analysed in this case.
