The Budd-Chiari syndrome is characterized by thrombotic or non thrombotic reduction of the venous hepatic flow. Several works have enabled the comprehension of Budd-Chiari syndrome as well as the diagnosis and treatment. This clinical review attempted to present the Budd-Chiari syndrome overall and more particularly the history, etiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis and the understanding of the latest developments in conservative and surgical management as well as prognosis. This review is based on relevant contributions from general surgery and gastroenterology journals, review articles and international references. (EN)
