ABSTRACT

Hypotension, hypoxia or hypotension and hypoxia together may proceed to ischaemic hepatitis; hypotension is often as a result of cardiovascular diseases. Ischaemic hepatitis not due to cirrhotic process or malignancy but due to acute thrombosis of the portal venous system is rare. In this article, we present a case of acute ischaemic hepatitis due to an acute thrombus developing after a ketoacidosis coma which was thought to have triggered this event. Other reasons which could be have triggered this event, such as a thrombophilia and cirrhosis or malignancy, were excluded.
