Hepatic ischemia is a rare complication of acute aortic dissection. There are few reports about liver and gallbladder infarction occurring from aortic dissection; their main cause was hypotension due to cardiac tamponade. Here we report a case of type B aortic dissection with isolated liver and gallbladder infarction from visceral artery malperfusion of a splenomesenteric trunk. Interventional radiology effectively detected the cause of ischemia and enabled treatment of the visceral artery malperfusion.
