Pylephlebitis is septic thrombophlebitis of the portal vein. It is an uncommon disease with high morbidity, mortality due to delayed diagnosis. It is associated with intra-abdominal infections, mostly acute appendicitis in childhood. We report a 16-year-old girl with a diagnosis of pylephlebitis and liver abscess secondary to perforated acute appendicitis.
