A case of congenital portal-systemic shunting due to an intrahepatic connection diagnosed by ultrasound scanning and color Doppler in an 8-month-old girl is reported. She began to manifest trimethylaminuria 3 years later. At 7 years of age, she is asymptomatic without therapeutic measures except for diet. This is the seventh reported case and the third in a child to our knowledge.
