Abstract

A portal vein aneurysm is divided into two groups; an extrahepatic portal vein aneurysm and an intrahepatic portal vein aneurysm. The morphology of an aneurysm can be divided into types such as fusiform, bilobulated and saccular. A saccular aneurysm that arises from the intrahepatic portal branch is extremely rare. We report here a case of a saccular aneurysm of the intrahepatic portal branch mimicking an intrahepatic hypervascular mass, as seen on a dynamic CT scan, with the radiological findings.
