PMID:  1283677     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Acute Budd-Chiari syndrome caused by compression of the inferior vena cava by a space-occupying lesion in the liver is rare in children. We report a case where the compression was due to a large staphylococcal abscess in the right lobe of the liver. A high index of suspicion in such a case ensures early intervention and saves life.
