Portal vein thrombosis (PVT) is a common complication of liver cirrhosis. The association between endoscopic injection sclerotherapy (EIS) and PVT is unclear. In this paper, we reported that a male cirrhotic patient developed acute mesenteric vein thrombosis after EIS for secondary prophylaxis of esophageal variceal bleeding. Immediate anticoagulation therapy was effective and safe in this patient.
