Clinical Presentation: Abdominal pain. No past medicalhistory.
Comment: The etiology of the portal vein and mesenteric veinthrombosis was
unkown in the case presented. Cavernoustransformation of portal vein is commonly seen
Description: Numerous wormlike vessels are present in the hepatichilum as well in
the pancreatico-duodenal region. Color Dopplerconfirms their vascular nature. These
correspond to a cavernoustransformation of the portal vein secondary to a long
standingthrombosis(>12 months). In the present case the thrombosis ofthe portal vein
extended to the superior mesenteric vein. The CTcorrelation was excellent.
