Abstract

Non-cirrhotic intrahepatic portal hypertension is characterized by portal hypertension in the absence of liver cirrhosis or portal vein thrombosis. The disease is common in the East and rarely seen in the West. Two cases with oesophageal varices are described. The histopathology is heterogeneous but includes vascular lesions and portal fibrosis. Patient management follows the current recommendations for variceal bleeding.
