Abstract

A case of a 54-year-old female with hepatic cirrhosis, who developed a large thrombus in the inferior vena cava that extended up to the right atrium and was associated with a portal vein thrombosis. She was admitted to our hospital because of symptoms of overt heart failure. A two-dimensional echocardiogram demonstrated a large mass in the right atrium originated from the inferior vena cava system. Computed tomography scans revealed tumor of the liver and a portal vein thrombosis. The patient was discharged on oral anticoagulation. Her remaining 1-year course has been uncomplicated.
