Abstract

Cavernous transformation of the portal vein (CTPV) is a rare condition characterized by the formation of multiple tortuous tiny blood vessels within and around a portal vein which has been occluded by thrombus. Early diagnosis of CTPV is relevant for timely intervention which could save the liver from non-reversible damage
