1. Patient presentation

  • A 69-year-old HBV+ man underwent routine abdominal ultrasound.
  • He had never undergone surgery before.
  • Doppler ultrasonography revealed partial venous thrombosis and a double portal vein.
  • Contrast-enhanced CT of the abdomen was performed to confirm ultrasound findings and rule out
    the presence of hepatic masses.
