Portal biliopathy is a newly introduced term, describing the changes observed in the biliary ducts of portal hypertension patients. We present here the case of a patient diagnosed with portal vein thrombosis secondary to a chronic pancreatitis; the abnormalities in the bile ducts were observed during the endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography. We also review the existing information on this subject in the literature.
