Congenital absence of the horizontal portion of the left portal vein is very rare and has been very reported sporadically. We present three such cases referred from other hospitals with a diagnosis of intrahepatic vascular anomaly. Color Doppler ultrasound not only confirmed the diagnosis but also allowed a quantitative measurement of blood flow in these cases. Although it is a very rare condition, knowledge of the ultrasound and color Doppler findings helps in establishing the diagnosis of this congenital anomaly.
