Portal vein thrombosis (PVT) after orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) is a life-threatening complication associated with a high rate of graft loss and patient death, with reported incidence of 1% to 2% in adults. We report a case of an early PVT after OLT complicated by hepatic infarctions in the liver graft. After surgical thrombectomy and restoration of the portal inflow, hepatic infarctions resolved spontaneously within 6 months, which was confirmed by computed tomography.
