Portal circulation aneurysms: two case reviews

Australas Radiol. 2007 Feb;51(1):87-90. doi: 10.1111/j.1440-1673.2006.01666.x.


Venous aneurysms of the superior mesenteric vein and portal vein are an uncommon occurrence and often an incidental finding. They can also be associated with hepatocellular disease and portal hypertension. We present CT and ultrasound findings of these entities. The management of venous aneurysms is generally conservative with serial imaging.
