From the Depart­ment of Sur­gery Mat­suyama Red ­Cross Hos­pital Mat­suyama, ­Japan

Inflam­ma­tion or infec­tion is one of the ­major ­causes of ­superior mes­en­teric ­vein throm­bosis. A ­case of sec­on­dary ­superior mes­en­teric ­vein throm­bosis is pre­sented, ­which was iden­ti­fied ­with ­enhanced CT. The mes­en­teric ­venous throm­bosis was due to diver­tic­u­litis of the ­ileum, and ­ilio-­cecal resec­tion was per­formed. ­Because no find­ings of intes­tinal ­ischemia ­were ­present, throm­bec­tomy was not ­attempted. ­After sur­gery, the ­patient was fol­lowed up by ­repeated CT ­scan, and spon­ta­neous throm­bol­ysis ­without throm­bec­tomy or throm­bo­lytic ­therapy was exhib­ited. The ­present ­case indi­cated abdom­inal inflam­ma­tion or infec­tion ­strongly ­related to the devel­op­ment and regres­sion of mes­en­teric ­venous throm­bosis.
