Core Tip Idiopathic non-cirrhotic portal hypertension (INCPH) diagnosis is based on liver histology, the clinical signs of portal hypertension and the exclusion of chronic liver diseases in the absence of portal and hepatic venous thrombosis. We describe a patient with paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria who presented with intravascular hemolysis, jaundice and refractory ascites. Abdominal portosystemic collaterals were evident in imaging without varices in endoscopy. Liver histology demonstrated portal venopathy, features of nodular regenerative hyperplasia and ischemic parenchymal changes without cirrhosis, all indicative of INCPH. Eculizumab treatment achieved improvement of hemolysis and reversion of biochemical and clinical manifestations of liver disease.
