Abstract

In the presence of portal hypertension, a recanalised para-umbilical vein and splenomegaly are diagnostic of a rare condition, namely Cruveilhier-Baumgarten syndrome. In this case demonstration of the large and tortuous vein by computed tomography (CT) imaging avoided catastrophic haemorrhage from a planned hysterectomy and served as a road map for surgical planning.
