We report a four year old boy who presented with liver failure secondary to anti-thrombin III deficiency related Budd Chiari syndrome. He was treated with TIPSS (transjugular intrahepatic porto systemic shunt) which reversed the encephalopathy, normalised the liver function and improved growth, pre-empting the need for a liver transplantation. This is the first reported case of TIPSS in a child with a fulminant presentation of Budd-Chiari Syndrome.
