Evolving Understanding of Noncirrhotic Portal Hypertension.

Although cirrhosis is one of the most common causes of portal hypertension, noncirrhotic portal hypertension can result from hemodynamic perturbations occurring in the prehepatic, intrahepatic, and posthepatic circulation. Intrahepatic portal hypertension can be further subclassified relative to the hepatic sinusoids as presinusoidal, sinusoidal, and postsinusoidal. For many of these differential diagnoses, the etiology is known but the cause of idiopathic noncirrhotic portal hypertension, recently included in porto-sinusoidal vascular disease (PSVD), remains poorly understood. Herein, we discuss the diagnostic pathological features of noncirrhotic portal hypertension, with an emphasis on PSVD.
