Management strategy after
diagnosis of Abernethy malformation: a case report
The Abernethy malformation is a
rare anomaly with a widely variable clinical presentation. Many diagnostic
dilemmas have been reported. Nowadays, with the evolution of medical imaging,
diagnosis can be made more easily, but management of patients with an Abernethy
malformation is still open for discussion.
In this case study, we describe a
34-year-old Caucasian man who presented with a large hepatocellular carcinoma
in the presence of an Abernethy malformation, which was complicated by the
development of pulmonary arterial hypertension.
This case underlines the
importance of regular examination of patients with an Abernethy malformation,
even in older patients, to prevent complications and to detect liver lesions at
an early stage.
