|History: Abdominal pain. No past medical history.|
|Findings: Numerous wormlike vessels are present in the hepatic hilum as well in the pancreatico-duodenal region. Color Doppler confirms their vascular nature. These correspond to a cavernous transformation of the portal vein secondary to a long standing thrombosis(>12 months). In the present case the thrombosis of the portal vein extended to the superior mesenteric vein. The CT correlation was excellent.|
|Diagnosis: Portal Cavernoma|
The etiology of the portal vein and mesenteric vein thrombosis was unkown in the case presented.
