Portal Vein Thrombosis (PVT) without non-cirrhosis is of low incidence. However, obesity may aggravate PVT and induce a high mortality rate. Herein, we present a case of a 66 years old woman with obesity who presented with fever and progressively worsening abdominal pain. Diagnostic workup resulted in Computed Tomography (CT) scan and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) showed PVT extends to the superior mesenteric vein. A diagnosis of PVT was made, and antibiotic as well as anticoagulant were administrated. However, obesity retard the recovery in this patient compare to general patients with normal weight. In addition to presenting risk factors of obesity in PVT, we offer a review of literature and draw important precise mechanisms to assist in the diagnostic workup and treatment of PVT in obesity.
