Pylephlebitis due to perforated diverticulitis.
Acta Chir Belg. 2005 Apr; 105(2):229-30.AC

Abstract

Pylephlebitis or septic thrombophlebitis of the portal vein is an uncommon and frequently fatal complication of diverticulitis. We describe a case report of a patient with pylephlebitis due to a perforation of the sigmoid. The patient was successfully treated with broad spectrum antibiotics and a Hartmann procedure.
