Core Tip Severe posterior nasopharyngeal epistaxis in hospitalized patients with end stage liver disease (ESLD): (1) is a diagnosis of exclusion that requires upper endoscopy to rule out common causes of upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage (UGIH); (2) can usually be effectively treated with nasal packing and correction of coagulopathy; (3) was the diagnosis of the bleeding source in 4.3 % of cirrhotic patients with a suspected UGIH; and (4) is associated with a high rate of mortality (63%) in those not receiving liver transplantation. Physicians managing patients with ESLD should be aware that epistaxis can masquerade as massive UGIH, particularly in those with severe coagulopathy.
