The authors describe a child with Budd-Chiari syndrome secondary to membranous obstruction of the hepatic veins and a web in the inferior vena cava. Transhepatic catheter venography demonstrated the occlusion, which was recanalized and dilated percutaneously via a transhepatic approach. Hepatomegaly and ascites decreased promptly and the prothrombin time became normal.
