The knowledge about the formation and relation of the portal vein is important for surgeons. The variation in the level of formation and the pattern of formation of portal vein is a cause of concern during surgical procedures. An abnormal formation of portal vein that was encountered during routine dissection is reported. The portal vein was formed by the union of splenic vein, superior mesenteric vein and inferior mesenteric veins. Identification of these variations is useful in managing traumatic rupture of the mesentery.
Keywords: variations, portal vein, obstruction.
