Anomalous portosystemic anastomoses associated with chronic hepatic insufficiency in six young dogs.


Chronic hepatic insufficiency due to anomalies of the portal venous system was diagnosed in 6 young dogs. The disorder was characterized by a variety of abnormal central nervous system signs or ascites, or both. Laboratory findings were characteristic of chronic, generalized hepatic dysfunction. The diagnosis was established by angiographic studies of the portal venous system. Of the 6 dogs, 3 died, 1 was euthanatized, and 2 are still alive and require medical management for ascites.
