Budd-Chiari Syndrome is an uncommon condition characterized by clinical features related to hepatic venous outflow obstruction resulting either from thrombotic or non-thrombotic causes. Presentations may vary from asymptomatic to acute fulminant hepatic failure. A meticulous history, examination and imaging studies are invaluable for a prompt diagnosis and initiation of time-sensitive treatment. This report presents a case of a young female with rapid onset ascites due to prothrombotic state of unknown cause with occlusion of all hepatic veins on doppler ultrasonography, without liver impairment.
