We present a case of a patient who suffered a rare complication of gastroesophageal varix coil embolization. During a follow up esophagogastroduodenoscopy, 4 years after transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt placement and variceal coil embolization, the coil pack was endoscopically visualized to be eroding into the gastric lumen.
