Abstract

Advanced liver disease and portal hypertension may produce various intrathoracic complications that involve the pleural space, lung parenchyma, and pulmonary circulation. Dyspnea and arterial hypoxemia are the common clinical symptoms and signs in patients with such complications. In these patients, intrathoracic complications most often develop during the course of hepatic disease, but a few patients may be seen first with respiratory symptoms or radiographic abnormalities. Therefore, radiologists should be made aware of these disorders that occur in patients with chronic liver disease. In this article, the authors describe and illustrate the clinical and imaging spectrum of thoracic abnormalities associated with advanced liver disease and portal hypertension.
