Absent portal vein bifurcation

Discussion:

Absence of bifurcation of the portal vein is an extremely rare anomaly. Portal vein branching anomalies occur due to aberration of normal anastomotic patterns and involution of vitelline veins during the development of portal vein. There is no clinical significance.

This case is presented together with my colleagues Reshetarov I. and Barskiy V.
