Ulcerative colitis is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease and may have many intestinal and extraintestinal complications. Compared with general population, patients with longstanding ulcerative colitis have an increased risk of colorectal cancer. Patients with ulcerative colitis have an increased frequency of thromboembolism too. However, hepatic vein thrombosis is a very rare extraintestinal complication. This is the first reported case of a young patient with ulcerative colitis who developed synchronous colonic neoplasm and chronic Budd-Chiari syndrome manifested as esophageal variceal bleeding. We report a case of ulcerative colitis complicated by Budd-Chiari syndrome and colon cancer in a 28-year-old female.
