Portopulmonary venous anastomosis (PPVA), which has been rarely reported in conventional CT and MR studies, is an unusual collateral pathway in patients with portal hypertension. It has clinical implications related to right-to-left shunt that are different from the clinical implications related to other more usual portosystemic shunts in portal hypertensive patients. Here, we report the dynamic CT and MRA findings of a case of PPVA in a patient with portal hypertension, directly demonstrating the shunt flow from the paraesophageal varix to the left atrium via the right inferior pulmonary vein.
