Core Tip Portal hypertensive enteropathy (PHE) is an under recognized complication of portal hypertension. It can present with a broad spectrum of clinical manifestations and endoscopic findings, making its diagnosis challenging. Video capsule endoscopy and deep enteroscopy are diagnostic tools of choice. PHE should be considered in patients with portal hypertension who present with occult or overt gastrointestinal bleeding, especially when portal hypertensive gastropathy and advanced cirrhosis are also present. Adequate resuscitation, reduction of portal pressure, and endoscopic therapeutic intervention remain the mainstay of initial treatment though definitive management may require a multidisciplinary approach involving hepatologists, endoscopists, surgeons, and interventional radiologists.
