Budd-Chiari syndrome is caused by the obstruction of the hepatic veins or of the inferior vena cava cava may be considered diagnostic for the Budd- Chiari syndrome. For this series the sensitivity of Doppler ultrasonography was 87.5%. T he Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS), or obstruction of hepatic venous outflow, is a rare disorder characterized by the development of severe ascite Budd-Chiari syndrome is an uncommon, often fatal disorder resulting from an obstructed hepatic venous outflow tract. The obstructive lesion is situated in the main hepatic veins, in the inferior vena cava or in both. The nature, location and extention of the obstruction can be displayed on diagnostic imaging techniques
Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) often leads to hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) has been increasingly used to treat BCS patients with HCC. The purposes of this study were to illustrate imaging features. Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) is a heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by hepatic venous outflow abstraction at the level of the hepatic venules, large hepatic veins, and inferior vena cava (IVC) up to the confluence with the right atrium. Radiological imaging plays an important part in the evaluation of a patient suspected to have BCS Budd-Chiari syndrome is classically associated with peripheral atrophy of the liver with sparing or enlargement of the caudate lobe . The caudate lobe tends to be spared because blood drains directly from it into the IVC. However the features of Budd-Chiari syndrome on CT imaging vary according to whether the condition is acute or chronic Budd Chiari Syndrome in Patient with PNH. 40 year old woman with known PNH diagnosed on bone marrow biopsy, presented with anemia, weight loss and hepatomegaly.

ities for diagnosing BCS in children. The imaging features differ depending upon the level of obstruction, acuteness of the condition, and secondary decompensation. Caudate lobe hypertrophy is a salient feature. Obstruction at the level of hepatic veins may be manifested by ostial narrowing, echogenic thrombus, and altered flow patterns in the form of turbulent flow, nonvisualization of the. I read with interest the systematic review and meta-analysis on diagnostic accuracy of Doppler ultrasound, CT and MRI in Budd Chiari syndrome (BCS), recently published in British Journal of Radiology and confirming that overall diagnostic accuracy for diagnosis of BCS is high for all. 1 However, despite the commendable effort to define the background of an agreed diagnostic approach for BCS. An early diagnosis of the disease is required for appropriate treatment. Due to the diffuse nature of the disease, normal biopsy findings do not exclude the disease. Proper clinical history and imaging are essential for definitive diagnosis. In this pictorial essay, we discuss the imaging spectrum of Budd Chiari syndrome

Budd-Chiari syndrome More Details is a manifestation of hepatic venous outflow obstruction that was first described by Budd in 1845 and then expounded on by Chiari, who presented 13 cases in 1899. The key imaging findings in Budd-Chiari syndrome are occlusion of the hepatic veins, inferior vena cava, or both, caudate lobe enlargement, inhomogeneous liver enhancement and the presence of. Budd-Chiari Syndrome is disorder in which veins carrying blood out of the liver become narrow and/or blocked due to blood clots. In a healthy person, blood normally flows from the intestines to the liver through the portal vein and then out of the liver through the hepatic veins and into the inferior vena cava, the large vein that flows back to the heart
Three cases of primary Budd-Chiari syndrome were found by ultrasonic examination. These were confirmed by hepatic venography and inferior vena cavography. The ultrasound findings in these patients included communicating vessels between hepatic veins, enlarged inferior right hepatic vein, reversed blood flow in the hepatic vein, and obstruction of the inferior vena cava. With these findings. Imaging findings in Budd-Chiari syndrome. Liver Transpl. 2001; 7(8):743-4 (ISSN: 1527-6465) McKusick MA.
