Ally has Budd-chiari syndrome.
Budd-Chiari syndrome is a condition in which the hepatic veins (veins that drain the liver) are blocked or narrowed by a clot (mass of blood cells). This blockage causes blood to back up into the liver, and as a result, the liver grows larger. The spleen (an organ located on the upper left side of the abdomen that helps fight infection by filtering the blood) may also grow larger.
congestive hepatopathy caused by blockage of hepatic veins. This syndrome occurs in 1/100 000 in the general population
Budd-Chiari Syndrome may also cause other conditions, including:
Portal hypertension (increased pressure in the portal vein, which carries blood from the intestines to the liver).
Esophageal varices (twisted veins in the esophagus, or “food tube”).
Ascites (a buildup of fluid in the abdomen).
Cirrhosis (scarring of the liver).
.Varicose veins (abnormal, swollen blood vessels) in the abdomen and/or rectum.
