Cholecystectomy is a common procedure for the treatment of symptomatic cholecystitis. A rare complication is the occurrence of subcapsular haematoma of the liver. In the literature, there are only a few case reports of this type. A 25-year-old woman was admitted to the Surgical Department for surgical treatment of cholecystitis. No complications were observed intra-operatively. On the first day after surgery, the patient manifested symptoms of hypovolaemic shock. The patient was qualified for surgical treatment in the mode of emergency surgery – a giant subcapsular haematoma was found. She was referred to the Clinic of General, Transplant and Liver Surgery of the Medical University of Warsaw for further treatment. This case shows the importance of monitoring the life parameters of patients who have undergone laparoscopic surgery due to symptomatic cholecystitis during the first day after surgery.
