We describe a young man with acute portal vein thrombosis (PVT) and cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection, and we review the literature regarding the association between PVT and CMV in immunocompetent patients. Published data suggest that CMV hepatitis and, possibly, other types of acute viral hepatitis could be a local risk factor for acute PVT.
