Although thrombolytic therapy is one of the most effective therapeutic option for acute ischemic stroke, hemorrhagic complication still remains major concern about its application. A patient with hemoperitoneum, who previously underwent thrombolytic therapy(intraarterial urokinase infusion, IAUK) for acute ischemic stroke was treated successfully with emergency transarterial embolization for rupture of hepatocellular carcinoma. We present a rare case of rupture of hepatocellular carcinoma after intraarterial urokinase infusion for acute ischemic stroke with brief review of the literature.
Key words: IAUK, Thrombolytic therapy, Aute ischemic stroke, Rupture of hepatocellular carcinoma
