Abstract

Portal Vein Thrombosis (PVT) is caused by various thrombophilic states. PVT secondary to underlying vasculitis especially Churg-Strauss disease is among the rarest presentation. Here, we report a case of peripheral eosinophilia, eosinophilic ascitis and venous thrombosis involving portal vein and superior mesenteric vein diagnosed as Churg-Strauss Syndrome (CSS). He was managed with steroids and anticoagulants. Following initiation of steroids, eosinophilia and eosinophilic ascitis improved.

Keywords
