Key Words Contrast-enhanced ultrasound; Hepatocellular carcinoma; Portal vein thrombosis; Benign thrombosis; Malignant thrombosis
Core Tip Portal vein thrombosis (PVT) may occur in liver cirrhosis patients. Malignant PVT is a common complication in cirrhotic patients with concomitant hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and, in some cases, it may be even the initial sign of an undetected HCC. Due to its high performance in characterization of PVT in cirrhotic patients, contrast-enhanced ultrasound should be considered as the gold standard method and, often, the only diagnostic tool in cirrhotic patients for differential diagnosis between malignant and benign PVT.
