An autopsy case of an enormous shunt between intrahepatic portal vein and hepatic vein in a 57-year-old man who showed an Inose's type of hepatocerebral disorder for 6 years is described. The shunt measuring up to more than 1 cm in diameter was located in the right-upper angle of the right liver lobe. The wall of the shunt lacked both the muscular layer and the elastic lamellae. Based upon the histopathology and the clinical history, this shunt was considered not to be a congenital malformation but a vascular disorder resulted from the parenchymal collapse of the liver.
