The Budd-Chiari syndrome, or Chiari's syndrome, is the disease complex which follows hepatic vein occlusion. It is a moderately well popularized secondary abdominal response to several disease processes, but the number of reported cases remains remarkably small. During the past 32 months seven autopsy-proved cases and four presumptive cases have been observed. This appears to be a large experience with the syndrome, perhaps explained by the fact that a large tumor center was the source of material. From 1910 to 1939 at the Mayo Clinic 20 instances were encountered.1 Only five were found during 11,979 autopsies at Stanford University.2
