Abstract

Cases of non-cirrhotic portal hypertension have been reported in HIV-negative patients as a result from exposure to adenosine analogues (e.g. azathioprine), bacterial infections, trace metals and chemicals, genetic coagulation disorders and/or autoimmune diseases. More recently, reports of similar cases in HIV-positive individuals have attracted much attention.
