Spontaneous splenoazygos shunt in a patient with portal hypertension: an exceedingly rare occurrence

637-638

Filipa Figueiredo, João Costa, Raquel Lameiras, Miguel Ramalho,

We present a case of a spontaneous splenoazygos shunt in a patient with liver cirrhosis and portal hypertension, detected by abdominal magnetic resonance imaging. Multiplanar reconstruction demonstrated communication of the splenic vein with the azygos vein that was dilated with a winding course along the mediastinum. This pathway for decompression of the portal vein is an exceedingly rare occurrence.
