PMID:  20012786     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We report a male neonate who had liver abscess that resolved with intravenous antibiotics and surgical drainage. However, the child developed complete thrombosis of portal vein with cavernous formation within 16 days of therapy and portal hypertension subsequently. The child is now 2 1/2 years and has extra hepatic portal hypertension but is otherwise asymptomatic.
