Portal biliopathy is a rare condition that is usually not diagnosed and only in few cases causes symptoms. Those symptoms are caused by vascular obstruction of the biliary tree in patients with portal hypertension. We report a case of a 29 years man who presented with history of intermittent jaundice, persistent elevation of hepatic function test and hematemesis as a manifestation of portal hypertension without liver damage. We present the clinical, radiological and pathological characteristics and literature review of the cases that had been reported, their diagnoses, treatment and clinical implication.
