Selective hepatic venography in a case of Budd-Chiari syndrome demonstrated marked narrowing of the hepatic venous ostia and a disordered collateral venous network within the liver which is characteristic of the syndrome. Blood flow in the hepatic veins was reversed through anastomoses between the hepatic veins and the systemic veins of the abdominal wall and diaphragm. Another unusual feature in this patient was the presence of marked regenerative hypertrophy of the caudate lobe of the liver which caused marked compression of the inferior vena cava.
