Development of an intraabdominal bile collection (biloma) usually occurs secondary to traumatic or iatrogenic injury including abdominal surgery, percutaneous catheter drainage, and transhepatic cholangiogram. We present a case of hepatic subcapsular biloma following endoscopic retrograde cholangiography and identified by ultrasound and computed tomodensitometry examinations. A percutaneous drainage procedure allowed a subsequent endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography to be performed that documented the location and extent of the bile leak and led to resolution of the biloma.
