We here report a case of celiac disease and Budd Chiari syndrome. This 19-year-old boy was diagnosed to have portal hypertension in another hospital when he had developed variceal bleeding. In our hospital, he was found to have occlusion of all three hepatic veins as the cause of portal hypertension. On a routine endoscopy, he was found to have scalloping of duodenal folds. Suspecting celiac disease, he was investigated further. He did have positive serology for celiac disease as well as suggestive histology. He was found to be deficient for protein C and protein S. He was managed conservatively and put on gluten-free diet, with which he showed clinical improvement. A review of literature showed that only 14 previous cases of this combination were recorded and except for one all were from North Africa or southern Europe.
