Intrahepatic arterioportal fistula (IAPF) is a rare cause of portal hypertension. Treatment is usually aimed at restoring the normal portal hemodynamics by obliterating the shunt. This report describes a case of idiopathic IAPF with severe portal hypertension complicated by portal enteropathy with vomiting, gastrointestinal hemorrhage and sepsis. The patient was successfully treated with portal embolization.
