ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Budd-Chiari Syndrome. A 46 year old Caucasian female, gravida 3, para 3 was admitted with massive anasarca and ascites to the Cardiology Service at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Medical Center from another hospital. She had had facial, arm and leg edema approximately three and one-half years for which she was given oral Furosemide 40 mg q.d. with mild success in that the edema did not remit completely, but neither did it progress. The edema was under such control for one and one-half years prior to the present episode. The concept of persistence of the fetal valves of the sinus venosus producing diverse types of diaphragms obstructing the right atrium at various levels in at least four distinct combinations, some of which have an increased incidence of complex congenital cardiac abnormalities. Since the present case represents a separate, previously unreported variant, it is necessary to briefly describe formation of the right atrium as it pertains to this anomaly.

Its anatomy, however, is not always appreciated, despite being well-described. With this caveat in mind,...
