PMID:  10929369     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We describe an infant with intrahepatic portosystemic venous shunt (IPSVS), which was detected by MR angiography. IPSVS is rare and its cause is disputed. However, with improvements in imaging the number of reports of IPSVS identified incidentally in patients without definite symptoms is increasing. The present case is the first associated with congenital biliary atresia and the youngest reported in the literature.
