What is Budd Chiari Syndrome?
(Symptoms, Causes & Treatment)
Budd-Chiari syndrome is a rare condition brought on by blood clots that completely or partially block blood flow from the liver. The blockage may occur anywhere from the small and large veins that carry blood from the liver (hepatic veins) to the inferior vena cava. The syndrome can be fulminant, acute, chronic, or asymptomatic.
The acute syndrome presents with rapidly progressive severe upper abdominal pain, yellow discoloration of the skin and whites of the eyes, liver enlargement, enlargement of the spleen, fluid accumulation within the peritoneal cavity, elevated liver enzymes, and eventually encephalopathy. The fulminant syndrome presents early with encephalopathy and ascites.
