Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) is defined as hepatic venous outflow obstruction at any level from the small hepatic veins to the junction of the inferior vena cava (IVC) and the right atrium. Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the complication of chronic liver disease and it usually presents as decompensation of the known chronic liver disease. HCC rarely present as BCS. Here, we present a rare case of HCC presenting first time with BCS with involvement of hepatic veins and dual thrombus in the IVC.
