A 58-year-old female with a history of portal vein thrombosis was referred to our hospital with abdominal pain and distention. Colon fiber and enema of the colon showed stenosis at the transverse colon and the ascending colon, with edematous mucosa. Laparotomy revealed no abnormal findings other than chronic ischemia of the colon. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of colon stenosis caused by portal vein thrombosis.
