[INTRODUCTION - Intrahepatic gas is frequently seen during abdominal ultrasound studies which is generally of biliary origin due to biliary interventional procedures e.g. endoscopic sphincterotomy. In our case, large amount of intrahepatic gas was present originated from the superior mesenteric and portal veins. CASE REPORT - A 94-year-old male patient with vomiting, shivering and heavy abdominal pain was admitted in bad condition to the department of surgery. Billroth II gastric resection was noted in the case history. Chest, plain abdominal X-ray and abdominal ultrasound examination was performed. Ultrasonography showed a large amount gas collection in the region of the left liver lobe (no prior history of endoscopic sphincterotomy). It was difficult to perform abdominal ultrasound due to the intrahepatic gas collection and abdominal bowel gas. Computer tomographic examination confirmed the presence of intrahepatic gas which is localized in the portal venous system. Large amount of gas collection was seen in the abdominal cavity, in the mesenterium and in the retroperitoneum. In addition a gallstone of 2 cm in size was found in the duodenum. CONCLUSION - CT scans confirmed the perforation of gall bladder due to subsequent cholecystic- duodenal fistula. As a consequence of perforation, inflammation of the mesentery and retroperitoneum developed causing mesenteric vein thrombosis and bowel wall necrosis. Bacteria in the necrotic bowel wall produced gas which entered into the veins and reached the portal system.]
