Abstract

In this paper, we illustrated a very rare type of spontaneous portosystemic shunt originating from main portal vein to right renal vein in a cirrhotic patient. The diagnosis of such a large spontaneous portosystemic shunt was established according to the axial contrast-enhanced computed tomography scans. The cause and outcome were also discussed.
