Intrahepatic portosystemic shunt is a rare disease that requires an accurate diagnosis because the lesion may be associated with hepatic encephalopathy and an invasive and expansive examination might be unnecessarily conducted. A cystic mass on an ultrasound examination in a patient without liver cirrhosis was diagnosed as an intrahepatic portosystemic venous shunt by using color Doppler imaging and computed tomography. We report here on the radiologic features of a congenital intrahepatic portosystemic venous shunt in a noncirrhotic liver.
