Abstract

Intrahepatic portosystemic venous shunts are rare vascular anomalies that may be detected in asymptomatic patients, given the recent advances
in radiological imaging techniques. Accurate shunt evaluation and  classification can be performed with ultrasound and multi-detector computed
tomography. We report an unusual case of an intrahepatic portosystemic venous shunt with an incidental finding of neurofibromata.
