Core Tip Gastrointestinal bleeding is a common complication of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, HCC leading to Hepatogastric fistula presenting as massive upper gastrointestinal bleeding is uncommon. Here we report a case of HCC with direct invasion of the stomach leading to massive gastrointestinal bleeding. Patient was managed with selective arterial angiogram and coil embolization to control bleeding. HCC with local metastasis to adjacent structures such gastrointestinal tract carries poor prognosis. With increasing incidence of HCC and recent improvements in the treatment of advanced HCC, this condition may become more common and awareness among clinicians should help consider this condition in the differential diagnosis and prompt management.
