Dr. Navtej Singh | Dr. Tarun [13] | Dr. Arvind [12]

Abstract: Idiopathic non-cirrhotic portal hypertension (INCPH) is a rare disease characterized by intrahepatic portal hypertension in the absence of cirrhosis, other causes of liver disease and splanchnic venous thrombosis. We report a case of a18-year-old female who presented to us with a history of pain abdomen from 7 days, fever and generalized weakness from 4-5 days, black coloured stools from 2 days and one-episode of hematemesis on the day of admission. All known causes of hypersplenism were ruled out and she was diagnosed to have idiopathic massive splenomegaly with portal hypertension and hypersplenism.
