A new condition of interest is protein s deficiency associated with hypercoagulation and recurrent venous thrombosis and ascites. we report the case of a non cirrhotic 9 years old male Whit tense ascites diagnosed with portal and Superior mesentric vein thrombosis caused by protein s deficiency.

Case Report: A 9 years old boy was evaluated for tense ascites which has led to um local hernia since one month before admission. he had not any clinical or laboratory stigmata of paranchymal liver disease. he had history of abdominal pain that led to appendectomy four months ago. Imaging studies showed Superior mesenteric and portal vein thrombosis. In laboratory tests for pre thrombotic states he suffered from significant proteins deficiency.
