Intestinal stricture from superior mesenteric vein (SMV) thrombosis is a relatively infrequent, though important cause of intestinal obstruction. The symptom of intestinal obstruction in a patient with chronic SMV thrombosis should be considered as the possibility of bowel stricture. We report 2 cases of small bowel stricture that is related to chronic SMV thrombosis which were treated with segmental resection of strictured bowel.
