A patient with obscure hepatosplenomegaly was shown by percutaneous hepatography to have a partial obstruction of inferior vena cava in the hepatic portion. Clinical examination showed no physical signs of inferior vena cava obstruction and initial liver biopsy also failed to suggest the diagnosis. The present report highlights the value of percutaneous hepatography in the diagnosis of ‘membranous’ obstruction of hepatic portion of inferior vena cava.
