We report the case of a 55-year-old man who developed heparin-induced thrombocytopenia II after a vertebral fracture. Autopsy revealed segmental hepatic vein thrombosis of the right lobe with subacute congestion and an activation of hepatic stellate cells. This case shows that heparin-induced thrombocytopenia II is a possible cause of the Budd-Chiari syndrome.
