    Abstract

    An 11 year old boy developed pancytopenia, haemolysis, and Budd-Chiari syndrome. The venous thrombosis extended to involve other intra-abdominal vessels before paroxysmal nocturnal haemoglobinuria was recognised as the underlying haematological abnormality. Earlier diagnosis would have made curative bone marrow transplantation a possibility.
