Abstract

A man of 24 is presented, who had chronic inflammatory bowel disease, best classified as ulcerative colitis. Associated with it he developed a portal triaditis, which led to noncirrhotic portal hypertension. The pathogenesis of the triaditis associated with inflammatory bowel disease is uncertain, and the histology and follow-up in this case shed no additional light on that matter. Because of the variable natural history of this complication, the effect of the (performed) colectomy on the liver disease is problematic.
