Özet

Portosystemic collaterals are the natural consequence of portal hypertension. These collaterals can occur anywhere in the gastrointestinal tract. Apart from the usual sites, they can develop in some unusual and rare locations. In this report, imaging findings of an unusual venous collateral pathway between spleen and left subclavian vein in a 30-year-old female patient with cirrhosis and portal hypertension are presented.
