Intra-abdominal hemorrhage occurring while on cardio-pulmonary bypass (CPB) is a rare and potentially lethal event during coronary artery bypass procedures. We herein report an unusual case in which massive intra-abdominal bleeding during CPB originated from a previously undiagnosed ovarian tumor, leading to acute anemization and hemodynamic instability and requiring emergency gynecologic surgery.
