Budd‑Chiari syndrome (BCS) is a rare clinical disorder which is caused by obstruction of the major hepatic veins or suprahepatic portion of the inferior vena cava. Either thrombosis or a mechanical venous obstruction may be present. BCS has been shown to be associated with a number of diseases including polycythaemia vera, myeloproliferative disorders, malignancy or congenital web of the gastro‑in‑ testinal tract. Right‑sided cardiac tumours, although rarely reported as a cause for BCS, are generally considered as a surgically curable cause for this otherwise potentially lethal clinical condition.
