Portomesenteric vein gas is a rare condition, which patogenesis is not completly understood. One of causes is e.g. mesenteric ischemia. Patogenesis of this condition are: intraabdominal sepsis, interventional procedures, liver transplantation, Crohn disease and trauma. In 15% of causes its idiopatic. Hepatic portal venous gas predict high risk of mortality (>50%). An advanced radiology techniques such as computed tomography can be helpfull in recognizing of this pathology stage. We want to report a case of 83-year-old man with acute abdominal pain after cardiovascular procedure, with portomesenteric vein gas and bowel pneumatosis detected on computed tomography.
