Chronic mesenteric venous thrombosis is an uncommon problem that can occur spontaneously or secondary to trauma, contiguous inflammation, or hypercoagulable states. Diagnosis is often difficult, and therapy is controversial. Surgery and/or anticoagulation may be needed. The authors describe the clinical presentation and management of a patient with this unusual condition.
