Abstract

Nodular regenerative hyperplasia of the liver usually presents with signs of portal hypertension with little evidence of obvious liver disease. We report a 47 year old man who presented with clinical signs of decompensated cirrhosis, recurrent encephalopathy, and tense ascites but at liver transplant was found to have nodular regenerative hyperplasia associated with a portal vein thrombosis.
