ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) and the veno-occlusive disease (VOD). It states that BCS is a liver disease resulting from a hepatic venous outflow block. The hepatic venous system could be invaded by malignant tumors of the liver and hepatic echinococcal disease. It cites that VOD is presented by non-thrombotic, microvascular lesions without involvement of large veins that occur in a particular context of exposure from endothelial toxins.
